In this profound and eloquent book, an eminent psychoanalyst discusses the primitive and irrational delusions that are common to all of us. Drawing on the lives and works of such literary figures as Samuel Butler, as well as clinical cases, Dr Leonard Shengold illustrates how we can lessen the effect of these delusions through insight into what we are and what has happened to us-insight necessary for successful therapy and for happiness in life.
