This insightful and accessible book will be valuable for both lay people and professionals. The authors managed to produce a work that is clinically sound and fun to read. The book clearly explains a great deal about this complex stage of development, and provides perceptive analyses that can help any mother-to-be navigate this unique time in her life. In addition to being a useful resource for me in my psychotherapy practice when I work with pregnant patients and their husbands/partners, I anticipate that this will also be useful in my work as a clinical supervisor and teacher. Well documented and clearly written case examples are used to illustrate important concepts of adult personality development and dream interpretation. On a more personal note, I also look forward to having the opportunity to give this as a gift to friends and family members during their pregnancies.
