I have a good memory of my early childhood, and this book reinforced what I had already suspected. While I took the blame for all of their disappointments in me, it was they who made me what I was.
I lived to get away from my mother. And I had decided by the time that I graduated from high school that I could not put another child through what I had been through. I would have been exactly like her because I had never seen an example of a child being loved.
My mother did not want to be a mother. This book explains why I am the way that I am today, anxious and isolated and not being able to socialize.
The learning disabilities that I had were monumental, but at least I lived during a time where I was not labeled.
I scored poorly on the Stanford Binet test and overheard my mother say to my dad that she guessed that I would never amount to nothing.
This book is so important, and if it makes women feel guilty, so be it. How the mother treats the child determines the child's future.
I love animals, and the thought of using them for testing makes me sick. But if testing animals will make people understand what they are doing to their children, it is worth it and PETA be damned.
Harry Harlow's real life is set against the primate family situations in this compelling story of love's basic place in our lives set against the psychology of the day including other giants such as Bowlby. It makes one challenge and examine the relationships in their lives.
Blum's writing is never dry, never boring. She writes with amazing flair and humanity. You'll feel that you are getting to know this person, Harry Harlow. Even more, you'll feel you are there in the lab with Harlow and his graduate students, waiting to see how the baby monkeys will react to the latest experiment. What will we learn? Will anyone listen? Blum cares, and you'll care too.
You can't help but feel for the monkeys when you read this book. And Blum doesn't gloss over the issue of abuse, especially mental, that was visited on our primate cousins in the name of science. "Goon Park" takes an unflinching look at Harry Harlow, warts and all. I think her treatment of all the issues was fair and balanced.
I highly recommend "Love At Goon Park." It's well-written, interesting and important.
