Amazon Verified Purchaser Review:  NOBODY BELIEVED ME (Kindle Edition)
Excellent book  Very interesting. It really shows the abuse some parents have toward their children. It might help the children to get help and finally have some peace put back into their life again. Although it’s a  sad story it does have a happy ending.
Thank you, Paulette for your sad but wonderful story and hope that your hellish nightmare is finally over.
God Bless and keep you safe.

Always good information for the abused to know, especially for the teens involved. Emotions have a lot to do with
feelings and staying sane.

This is a true story. In 1959, a 12-year-old girl living in Florida was raped by her stepfather and immediately collapsed into profound shock. Her mother witnessed the crime but didn’t have any health insurance to help her daughter receive proper medical care. Instead, she decided to place her daughter in one of the most notorious U.S. mental institutions of the time at Chattahoochee.

Yet, this girl survived to tell everyone the truth about Chattahoochee Hospital. But until many years after reforms had been introduced, nobody believed her! As investigations revealed the extent of the mistreatment of patients, the girl then growing into adulthood, found that she couldn’t lead a normal life. Nightmares and flashbacks haunted her for decades.

50 years on, Paulette Conti, has revealed her whole story to award-winning, Australian journalist and author, Les Thompson. As well as documenting her eyewitness account of what really occurred inside Chattahoochee, this story also paints a poignant picture of a girl yearning for her mother to rescue her and then finally meeting the dashing Italian-American man whose lively spirit and deep compassion would lead her to having her own family, a nursing career and the determination to help others.

REVIEW

In his book, Les gives some invaluable advice as to how to improve one’s communication skills. Although the book is mainly aimed at people who want to try their luck in broadcasting and media, it proves virtually universal. Being an EFL teacher, I generally read methodology and linguistic books, but Les’s volume shows that one can also find useful answers outside the field. Les has convinced me how important it is to make people listen to what one needs to say (e.g. that certain ways of communicating are better than others, and that lazy speech will not be tolerated, while a foreign accent will). Les argues that good speech habits are easy to learn and apply – this is good news for everybody who was not born a great speaker/writer. Finally, the motto: “People who do what they enjoy are the most successful in the long term” will certainly appeal to everyone who likes doing things passionately and enthusiastically.

Comments from Les Thompson:

Thank you for the kind emails and on-line chats about this book. There are some very amusing questions that people have raised with me – some thinking that I may have met them and that they were the real source or should I say sauce for parts of the book. I can only say that if you can match the real-life adventures described in this book, you must have led a very interesting life.

Aussie Jack certainly talks in explict and humorous terms of his wild sexual adventures. However, they serve to illustrate the underlying serious theme of the book which stresses the importance of men understanding and respecting women as they go through their own sexual development.
Les Thompson.

Other Books by Les Thompson:

HomeFund – the history of NSW home lending – commissioned (1990) by the Co-operative Housing Societies Association of NSW.  This book detailed the history of Government-assisted lending and the 1980s changes made by the Federal Government to Australian financial policy. It predicted problems for Government-backed home loans should interest rates spiral upwards – as they did, leading to a collapse of the NSW Government devised scheme to assist middle income earners – a program that  had been supported by both the Labor & Conservative Governments. The book gained media attention and was used in the early 90s by both sides of parliament for a full day hearing on the subject. The ‘toxic loans’ involved were a pointer to the large-scale U.S. mortgage market collapse to follow in the next decade.
