Havens refers not only to the psychiatry greats, but to classic and contemporary authors from Shakespeare to Nabokov, to T.S. Eliot, to Wittgenstein. A dozen clinical vignettes offer a revealing glimpse into how therapy is done by a master practitioner. The book's evocative power is reminiscent of Winnicott's writings… Making Contact is written in lucid and energetic English and is a pleasure to read… [The book] shows how a cultured, versatile, concerned and mature therapist goes about his work—understanding patients and helping them resolve problems, change personalities, break out their alienation and find sense in themselves and in life.
— Alexander Elder, M.D.
