I second that Maat! They are not all available or easily findable, but, it is a plus! Thank you so much, especially because I had to place an order for some books on Amazon, and I could add some of your new inputs (six of them and I put others I had not yet in my edition wish-list). I also took the Conversation cruciales I had in my wish-list for some months, thanks for the recall Tomek! ;)

If I'm not mistaken, Levine's book has been translated, too:

In An Unspoken Voice: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness 4.1 - Peter A. Levine

Réveiller le Tigre - Guérir le traumatisme

No unfortunately it's not the same book, Réveiller le Tigre is the translation of Waking the tiger, healing trauma following the BNF (that is National Library of France)

Thanks, Maat. :)
Perhaps the book is still interesting to read for French folks so as to get acquainted with Levine's concepts?

It's really probable though I can't tell. Here, I just stuck to the "official" list.

Maybe this one could be added to the list of Pierre, in the first post of this thread where there are also some equivalents to compensate the shortage of the french list.

Perharps some forumites have others suggestions too !

I cannot be really helpful here because I do not know the original book. But I guess that add it on the list of Pierre surely should be a good idea. FWIW. ;)

To add on the list of the not "official list" recommended books but could be a must read in French, there is Influence et Manipulation by Robert Cialdini. By the way, this title has been mentionned by Jason, I think, in several shows of SOTT Talk Radio.

You can find a good review and overview of the book here : _http://www.conseilsmarketing.com/livres-de-marketing-gratuits/critique-du-livre-influence-et-manipulation-de-robert-cialdini

I own this book since a few years. It's a really interesting one, about Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) healing.

When I bought it, it was difficult to find (I bought it from either Chapitre or Decitre IIRC) - and it seems sold out nowadays.
