Hijack away, Puffer! ;-)
What was particularly intriguing to me was that Berman's influence was all about power over the teenagers. How many times have we heard that here on MS? (And quite similar to my own situation with my high school guidance counselor perp who I knew controlled my schedule, college plans, etc.).
And I like that Fisher took a different tack on the effects. Instead of citing figures, psychologists, etc., he went right to the experiences, even years on, of Berman's "special" students right into adulthood. imo, that approach made more of an impression.
