The author refutes the notion that thinking is turned on by biologically pre-determined "modules" in the brain, but that it arises from the nature and quality of the relationship between parent and child in the first 18 months of life. He draws on experience, case histories and research.

He is a psychiatrist trained at the Maudsley Hospital, London, a psychoanalyst trained at the Institute of Psycho-Analysis, London, and academic developmental psychologist with a PhD from the University of Cambridge. His research interests converge upon the significance of interpersonal relations for understanding the course of human development, both typical and atypical. He has long been intrigued by how consultations in psychoanalytic psychotherapy afford profound insights into human mental life and the potential for development.
