What Really Silenced Whitney Houston’s Once Beautiful Voice And Caused Her Untimely Death?

Las Vegas, NV, August 16, 2012 - Whitney Houston’s powerful voice made her one of the greatest musical geniuses of our generation. Yet even while she attained a level of triumphant success that surpassed all other musical stars, she descended into the pits of an internal hell that finally took her life. While her descent was fueled by drugs and supported by a destructive marriage, “the true cause of her death has never been revealed before now,” says Judith Sherven, PhD.

Beginning with early childhood and tracing her life and career, What Really Killed Whitney Houston? (JayEss Publishing) by husband and wife psychology team Judith Sherven, PhD and Jim Sniechowski, PhD examines her life and death through the lens of her unconscious loyalties and explains how these loyalties deprived her of being able to embrace and live inside her success.

Best-selling authors, relationship experts, and sought-after keynote speakers Judith & Jim (as they are best known) specialize in ‘The Fear of Being Fabulous’ and in their latest book What Really Killed Whitney Houston? they compassionately reveal the depth of Whitney’s internal hell and what ultimately cost her her life.

It would seem that being one of the world’s best-selling music artists, having sold over 170 million albums, singles, and videos worldwide, and being cited by the Guinness World Records as the most-awarded female act of all time, Whitney would have felt very secure about who she was. Unfortunately, the extreme pressure put on celebrities took both an emotional and physical toll on Whitney. While outwardly, she showed the world a beautiful woman with a voice like an angel – inside she was dealing with her own set of demons.

Judging by the rave reviews, all of us can learn from this book and gain freedom from our fears and issues. Art Klein, best-selling Book of the Month Club Author and former V.P. of Marketing for The New York Times Corporation, summed it up by saying: “This is the most important book ever written about the most important subject facing every aware human being: how to fulfill your magnificence and not succumb to lethal unconscious allegiances. This is a book about the deepest personal freedom possible. Nothing matters more.” 

What Really Killed Whitney Houston? is the sixth book by relationship experts Judith & Jim, whose first five books are already best-sellers. They have accurately discovered the core issue that holds people back from the success they desire and the solutions outlined in their book are evolutionary and enlightening.

Judith & Jim are sought after executive coaches for many major corporations nationwide and internationally, and as guest experts they have appeared on over 2500 television and radio shows including Oprah, The View, 48 Hours, Canada AM, MSNBC and CNN as well as being interviewed for and published by many high profile magazines and newspapers.


Excerpts from reader reviews:

Dr. Signe Dayhoff, New Mexico: “Incredible! Fantastic! Such an important topic! This is a brilliantly written psycho-history of Whitney Houston, detailing the unconscious influences that led to her inability to cope with two totally different worlds which put her in an insurmountable emotional bind. However, what she experienced is not rare…I was trapped for three decades with the out-of-mind conviction of being unacceptable and not belonging until I found Judith and Jim's "Fear of Being Fabulous" program and could finally develop my "core of confidence." …What makes this carefully-documented, empathic, very deep analysis of Whitney (more) important and timely is that it provides the reader with a roadmap for discovering their own unconscious loyalties so they can address them constructively and become the successful individual they really truly are and want to be.”

Wendy Lucas, Virginia: “You told the story of Whitney's allegiances so well that it got right to the core of my own issues and how I play them out in my life. It has really been life changing for me. Thank you for bringing this issue to light and using Whitney's life story to help us all see it…Maybe it is in her death that Whitney will be our teacher with the awareness you so clearly spelled out. Well done you two!”

Kellie Frazier, South Carolina: “WOW! I've already perused 'Whitney' and while doing so I felt I was skimming an unequivocal New York Times Best Seller. Now I really look forward to reading it.”

Jim Duffie, North Carolina: “The thought provoking and informative nature of this book has left me with a renewed vigor for my own personal journey of self discovery and awareness. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you!, Judith and Jim, for taking the time to create such a powerful story! I know this book will touch the hearts and souls of everyone who has the pleasure to take in its words.”
