Everyone with an interest in the art and science of psychotherapy - practitioners, patients, students, and avid readers of Freud, Jung, et al-will find this lively anthology an engrossing read.

• Mark Epstein's Thoughts Without a Thinker
• Eric Fromm's The Art of Listening
• A. M. Homes's In a Country of Mothers
• Theodore Reik's The Third Ear
• and others. The foreword by Irvin D. Yalom, author of Love's Executioner, offers additional wisdom, humor, and perspective.
At a time when managed care threatens the psychoanalytic tradition, this dramatic, inspiring collection reminds us of the healing power of insight and the unique gifts of the patient-therapist relationship.
