"Fred Busch is a bridge-figure, an explorer, a link-colleague who studies ideas and raises exchanges and confrontations. This is a rare attitude in our psychoanalytic history. He is an extraordinarily dialoguing colleague, who is able to recognize the otherness exactly, thanks to his own solid theoretical and clinical identity, with the addition of an unusual openness to the scientific encounter and shared elaboration." - Stefano Bolognini, M.D., Training and Supervising Analyst, Italian Psychoanalytic Society, Past-President, International Psychoanalytic Association.

"Fred Busch is one of our most creative thinkers and writers today. In these selected papers one gets a sense of his special qualities. He has an uncanny eye for detecting critical issues within contemporary psychoanalysis. With his "sixth sense" for tracking down crucial ideas across regions and cultures, Fred Busch has become a thinker to be reckoned with and a truly inspiring voice." - Elias de Rochas Barros, Training and Supervising Analyst, Sao Paolo, Brazil, Fellow of the British Psychoanalytic Society and Institute.

"The present book is a fundamental rework of the Ego Psychological or Contemporary Freudian approach to psychoanalytic technique, original, profound, and persuasive. The clarity and depth of this major contributions, the wealth of sophisticated clinical illustrations and their convincing links with the author's underlying theories makes for exciting and thought-provoking reading. I believe it is destined to become a classic in the literature of psychoanalytic technique." - Otto Kernberg, M.D., Training and Supervising Analyst, Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research, Professor of Psychiatry at Cornell University and Director of the Institute for Personality Disorders Institute of the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center.
