This fascinating book assesses Sandor Ferenczi's role in the history of psychoanalysis, examining his personal analysis with Freud, the father of the discipline.

The book delves into archival material to shed light on issues around transference between Freud and Ferenczi, as well as Ferenczi's own development as "the first analyst." It offers a unique deciphering of the transmission of psychoanalysis, distinguishing between self-analysis, personal analysis and training analysis, including a discussion on the duration and end of treatment, subjects rarely discussed in contemporary circles.

This book is an important read for practising clinicians and scholars alike.
