Reviews and Endorsements

'André Green's lucidity . combined with his rigorous approach, underlies the elaboration of this book as well as that of his work in general, but it does not lead him to radical pessimism. On the contrary, it opens out on to a note of hope, for, after giving a lucid account of these disappointing and sometimes tragic evolutions, the author seeks to account for their causes. This also attests to the depth of his psychoanalytic and human commitment to these difficult patients, a commitment that he does not regret in spite of these evolutions of which he has "recollections of disappointing experiences,
but not bad memories".'
- Christine Delourmel, from the Preface
