Reviews and Endorsements

“We know Adam Phillips to be a remarkable writer but in this wonderfully spirited book we discover he is also an endlessly interesting conversationalist. With his old friend, Ed Corrigan, as a talk-buddy, we are privy to dialogue as a form of performance art. There is genius here; there is good humor; there is joy. It doesn't get better than this.” Christopher Bollas, psychoanalyst, author of Meaning and Melancholia, and The Shadow of the Object.

“The book’s call and response format, the supple back and forth movement between Phillips and his audience … serves as an ideal introduction to a by now forbiddingly expansive and continually expanding body of work … succeeds in reaching into the heart of his thinking to give us its fundamental questions and stakes, especially when it comes to our clinical practice: Why do we bother with psychoanalysis? How does it serve the aim of ensuring life is worth the effort?” – British Journal of Psychotherapy
