Publisher Description

"[Oprah Winfrey and Bruce D. Perry] are both capable, likable narrators who are sincerely engaged with their subject matter...The performances of these two humanitarians make this a must-hear for anyone recovering from their traumatic past." -- AudioFile Magazine

This program is read by the authors.

Our earliest experiences shape our lives far down the road, and What Happened to You? provides powerful scientific and emotional insights into the behavioral patterns so many of us struggle to understand.

“Through this lens we can build a renewed sense of personal self-worth and ultimately recalibrate our responses to circumstances, situations, and relationships. It is, in other words, the key to reshaping our very lives.”—Oprah Winfrey

This audiobook is going to change the way you see your life.

Have you ever wondered "Why did I do that?" or "Why can't I just control my behavior?" Others may judge our reactions and think, "What's wrong with that person?" When questioning our emotions, it's easy to place the blame on ourselves; holding ourselves and those around us to an impossible standard. It's time we started asking a different question.

Through deeply personal conversations, Oprah Winfrey and renowned brain and trauma expert Dr. Bruce Perry offer a groundbreaking and profound shift from asking “What’s wrong with you?” to “What happened to you?”

Here, Winfrey shares stories from her own past, understanding through experience the vulnerability that comes from facing trauma and adversity at a young age. In conversation throughout the audiobook, she and Dr. Perry focus on understanding people, behavior, and ourselves. It’s a subtle but profound shift in our approach to trauma, and it’s one that allows us to understand our pasts in order to clear a path to our future—opening the door to resilience and healing in a proven, powerful way.

What Happened to You

I enjoyed listening to the audio book, but did not receive the pdf figures the narrators say go along with the audio purchase.

PDF Make this audio book no stars

I’m sorry but I am on my 3rd time listening to this amazing book, I have also gifted this audio book to my husband and my best friend of 40 years. Every time Dr Perry references one of the many pdf’s, I feel cheated! The visual is important to follow and it allows us to connect some important dots of subject matter. Come on Oprah or Dr Perry, haha … the thread f ratings is clear. The book 5 star but the audiobook without the PDFs, deserves a 2 star rating review. Please join me on this if you feel the same.

PDF • where is it?

I purchased the audio book, and keep being directed to view the PDF … but my PDF file in the library says I don’t have any. What’s up, and when will this component to my purchase be sent to me?
