While this book was written for all manner of mental health professionals, it also is of great importance to the general reader. The foucs is on a new way of understanding the human mind and the emotional issues with which it is faced. It shows that rather than love, death and the three forms of death anxiety it evokes--existential, predatory, and predator--is the basic challenge in human life and its psychotherapy. The book also shows how to distinguish true from false love, be it in a psychotherapy patient or therapist or in everyday life. The book truly revolutionizes our undserstanding of ourselves and changes our view of psychoanalysis as it endeavors to comprehend emotional life. It also is replete with the discovery of new archaetypes and universals in the emotion-processing mind. There is much here that is new and startling, and eminently useful.
