Dr. Suraci- Sybil in Her Own Words, and the Comments on the Huffington Post with Regards to Debbie Nathan’s Book Sybil Exposed

The comments on Amazon.com concerning Debbie Nathan’s book Sybil Exposed have pretty much exposed this book to be nothing more than a social commentary in which she is trying to further her cause, not only professionally but personally, in discrediting our nation’s history with satanic ritual abuse by associating it with impossible scenerios that don’t make any sense.  On the Huffington Post- there has been mention that Dr. Suraci’s book and Nathan’s book are somehow connected and that Dr. Suraci owes something to Nathan for her ridiculous book.  Now I have only just recieved Sybil In Her Own Words, but just leafing through it briefly I can tell that this book is more professional, and much more personal, than Sybil Exposed.  Down below I explain how I feel, but in wrapping up this entry- I suggest that it should not so much be Sybil Exposed  as Nathan Exposed, as she is trully showing her belief that child abuse is overstated, although we all, as of late, have seen how it is actually under reported.  Again- her arguments are flawed, and it just irritates me that she has been given the media attention that she has.  One has to wonder why.



The difference between Debbie Nathan’s book and Dr. Suraci’s book is that Dr. Suraci’s book is actually ABOUT Sybil- whereas Nathan’s book is primarily about satanic ritual abuse and discrediti­ng it, which she descibes in her last chapters “Contagion­” and “Containme­nt”. Also, Dr. Suraci met and interacted with the women- where Nathan just read a bunch of papers that were decades old. Nathan’s book is full of typos and seems to have been rushed onto the market without taking the time to go through it properly and make sure that the grammar was correct. I wonder if this could be because of Dr. Suraci’s work and the fact that he planned to come out with a book. (I also wonder if this push to discredit satanic ritual abuse is also due to the work I am doing in Omaha. Google my name to see what I am talking about). Either way- Sybil Exposed is unprofessi­onally written and needs an editor desperatel­y. I don’t know much about Sybil- she was before my time and had nothing to do with the satanic ritual abuse that I sufffered as a child in Omaha, bringing me to my biggest point comparing the two. Nathan’s book is an attack on survivors and women- whereas Dr. Suraci’s seems to be an explanatio­n of a very women Nathan’s uses in her attack, and, from what I can tell so far, is a celebratio­n in the woman’s healing and the fact that she had a life afterwards­.
