Sybil Exposed by Debbie Nathan

The 411 by Maria 
I was  obsessed with this book and movie with Sally Field. As a big Sally fan and horrified that this had happened to someone just destroyed me. When I heard about this book, I had to read it. I had to know what was real and what was fabricated. I read the book so many times as a teen and saw the movie at least 50 times. To know I may have lost sleep over something that was embellished on just didn't sit well with me. 

The author takes us on a journey to dissect the best selling book! It is a disturbing read but one that should be read especially if you were affected by the book or movie Sybil. 


  1. This review must be incredibly disheartening to those who were severely traumatized as children. It must also be disheartening to those, like myself, who have done some fact-checking of Nathan's work.
    As unfortunate as the result might be, I think Nathan has discovered something about us. Frame your work as an "expose" and readers will believe what you say and be suitably shocked.

  2. Sounds intriguing. I'd love to read both sides of the story and make up my own mind.
