"Silencing the Self raises questions
as fascinating as the answers it offers...What I found most compelling was the women's own voices. The conflicts and losses depressed women describe are different not only in degree from those felt by women who are not clinically depressed. That is why this book is relevant to anyone grappling with the central challenge of relationships: how to achieve connections to others without losing oneself."
- Deborah Tannen (New York Times Book Review)
