MARKETING ALERT
 
Early readers agree, GOOD MORNING, MONSTER 
is an important part of a balanced breakfast reading list!
 
“GOOD MORNING, MONSTER is a testament to the indomitable human spirit… Gildiner writes with warmth, compassion, and even humor in the face of darkness. This book makes a great addition to any reader’s book shelf, but particularly fans of GIRL WASH YOUR FACE and NO ONE CARES ABOUT CRAZY PEOPLE. 
Everyone deserves the gift of good mental health.”
—Pamela Klinger-Horn, Excelsior Bay Books
 
“[GOOD MORNING, MONSTER] was fascinating. These five people are true heroes. It is inspiring and gives me hope to know that the human animal can overcome such depravity, abuse, neglect, and overwhelming odds to find a healthy, meaningful life.” 
—Nancy McCarty, The Otto Bookstore 
 
“[GOOD MORNING, MONSTER] is a must for anyone starting the journey of therapy or for young professionals guiding others in the journey.”
—Kimberly McGee, Lake Travis Community Library
 
“I loved this book… GOOD MORNING, MONSTER was a stunning look into the lives of people who have suffered, survived, and succeeded in their search for healing.”
—Kaylyn Magee, Wordsmith Bookshoppe
 
“This is a very readable and moving account of 5 case studies by Catherine Gildiner.  It read like a novel, but with just enough documentation to make it believable.”
—Marion Hersey, Paperback Exchange
 
“[GOOD MORNING, MONSTER] was a riveting book to read. The patients’ stories were heart-breaking and inspiring. They were all truly heroes of the game of life. And the stories were told in a heartfelt manner. Everyone should have a therapist like Dr. Gildiner.”
—Janet Mills, Rhythm & Co. Books
 
“What could be just another recounting of patients gaining mental health through therapy is instead a moving account of five journeys from despair to success. Dr. Gildiner frames these individuals as heroes for their survival of physical and mental abuse of monumental proportions, and for their persistence to overcome the damage that was done to them.”
—Camille Kovach, Completely Booked
