Killing Buddha - An Account of Surviving Abuse and Therapy

273 pages4 hours


Mother was a paranoid schizophrenic and an abusive parent who told me she wished I’d never been born. She killed herself when I was 15, leaving a message that she still rejected me. My father sent me to several psychiatrists after that but I could trust nobody -- except Dr. Ian Kent. He wasn’t smooth like the others. He didn’t try to finesse me. For years I trusted his guidance but I went to the brink of despair while in his care. Finally I left. Doctors, lawyers, professors and business executives followed him like a guru; I believed the failure was mine. Not until I read his book did I realize that maybe I wasn’t the crazy one. Killing Buddha is about therapy bleeding into cultism, crossing the line unnoticed. It’s about devastation and survival.
