Book reviews

‘ACEs in the shadows’ is not simply a book about the ACEs study and the ACEs movement. It is a personal account of A. Survivor’s lived experience, a narrative that brings into sharp focus the detrimental impact of highly Toxic Stress and the damaging consequences of Adverse Childhood Experiences across the life course. The truths about ACEs in terms of behavioural, physical as well as mental health implications are poignantly described in the author’s inimitable style of ‘Tell it how it is’:- Descriptions of abuse, neglect and family dysfunction that are gut wrenching; accounts of determination to triumph over adversity that are heartrending and heart-warming in equal measure; an enlightening read for anyone interested in becoming truly ACE Aware and Trauma Informed.

I feel honoured to have been asked and have willingly contributed to the chapter ‘What can you do about ACEs?’ The long-term public health implications of ACEs concern us all. 

Judy James www.emotionfocus.co.uk


The authors adverse childhood experiences are an example of how society has mistreated children over many years, while pretending to be a sophisticated, first world country.

The reality is very different. Children, and there are many thousands of them, have had their life chances completely destroyed by adults who abused their power and influence. The war, and it is a war, against the violation of children in our country and many others, has only just begun. It will be a long war.

The ACEs movement is one of the battalions fighting for change.

Graham Wilmer MBE – Director Lantern Project


This is an open and unrestricted account of the impact on ACEs for not only children but adults. The bravery of the Author to place this in the public arena is not unrecognised.

Having established the England North ACEs Network, it has been a pleasure to work with The Cumbria Resilience Project and ACEs Cumbria Forum and to support their efforts to become an ACEs aware region. The momentum of this movement in the North is testimony to those who are ‘driving’ the bus forward and believe that it doesn’t have to be this way.

This book is written to allow anyone to understand what ACEs are and why they are important for every single person no matter who you are.
