This will make you weep as you recognize the truth of it, and how most of us gave up that bright, energetic, confident little girl in order to fit in, get along, and 'succeed.' I keep rereading the first 15 pages because they're so accurate and so sad; I expect I'll move along to more truths one of these days.

This is one of the best books ever for women getting in touch with that part of them they have put aside for years and decades. It helped me remember who I was at age 8 or 9 and se that she is still there, waiting to express herself. It is a joy to find her, embrace who she is and incorporate her into my life now.

EXCELLENT!

In the author's words, _The Girl Within_ is "an arrangement of female portraits" (Introduction) rather than another inner-child book. "At the buried core of women's identity is a distinct and vital self first articulated in childhood, a root identity that gets cut off in the process of growing up female. The women in my study came fully into their own and became truly themselves only when they recaptured the little girl they'd been in the first place - before she got all cluttered up." (Chapter 1)
Few of the women Hancock goes on to describe have fully rejoined the girl within; some seem to have no hope whatsoever of recovering that girl's vitality. Rather than detracting from Hancock's thesis, this realism lends it authenticity. Descriptive rather than directive, _The Girl Within_ will spirit you on your journey to girlhood strength rather than force your girl within to appear by demand of prescriptions, steps or assignments.
Although this book - an off-shoot of the author's doctoral work - is academic in tone, it manages thoroughness without being dry. Influences are well documented, sources are dutifully cited, and still the author is present in the work, unlike dissertations written in a distant voice.
Now for the book's weaknesses, as I'm a demanding reader. The scope of _The Girl Within_ is severely limited in that the subjects available for study were socially, economically and intellectually privileged women. The author's vocabulary will further deter women of lesser means from accessing the empowering thesis presented here. Hancock's editor should be reprimanded for allowing words such as "gravid" (meaning pregnant) to appear without clarification. Use of slang such as "moxie", although limited, underlines the narrow applicability of Hancock's work. A further annoyance is the frequent use of foreign phrases when the English would do just as well, such as "rite de passage" and "sotto voce". Most readers will understand "en route", but one must be privileged indeed to understand the concept of "adulte manquée".

This book is profound, and one of those that I had to read in small "bites," because it went so to the heart and gave me much to ponder, as I looked back at my childhood and considered those aspects of the the child self that remain today.

Best self help book I have ever read. Learned so much about myself from the case histories - saw parts if me in several of them. Very well written. I highly recommend it to all my friends, male as well as female, especially ones that are going through a difficult period in a relationship or have just ended one. Wish it was still in print so many more people could read it & learn!
