Reviews and Endorsements

'A comprehensive exploration of some of the most puzzling and intransigent mental states that clinicians encounter ; “Ground breaking” is often an over-used and clichéd term, ...but in the case of this book, it constitutes a fair description, one most unusual in the professional literature hitherto.'
- Margot Waddell, author of Inside Lives: Psychoanalysis and the Growth of the Personality
