This book is a good introduction to the life of Melanie Klein and to her groundbreaking work. As the book title suggests, it is not intended to be an authoritative text but for those wanting to read more, citations are given to primary literature. The illustrations are a wonderful aid to the text and allow the reader to visualize what would be difficult to grasp from words alone. One could complete this book on one reading and be able to grasp the vocabulary of Klein's theories which is essential to understanding the writings of future analytic writers. The book does not require any previous knowledge of Klein or of psychoanalysis in general.
