I'm surprised nobody's reviewed this, yet! This is simply a VERY strong recommendation, not a review. As an interested layman, though with a background in psychology and a lot of experience of psychoanalytic thinking as applied to organisational consultancy, I'd normally expect a case study such as this to be very dry, indeed. But no-!! It's an real delight, and I found it absolutely un-put-downable!! Winnicott was, of course, the originator of play-based child therapy, and, from this account, one can very clearly see why it was so successful, and later widely adopted. If you're at all interested in child therapy, or in Winnicott's way of working, DO buy it - I promise you you won't regret it!
