Overview

'I really liked this book a lot. It is so bitty, so easy to dip into. I found so many quotes I loved and found useful and wanted to remember' - Self and Society

'This book is a valuable resource for future scholars and aspiring biographers and well worth the effort of anyone really interested in the life and thought of this brilliant and tormented man' - Journal of the Behavioural Science

This volume collects together accounts, both professional and personal, of R D Laing by those who knew him. Some view Laing as important as Jung or Freud - a revolutionary of his time. His psychiatry work in the 1960s and 1970s was unconventional, even radical, and Laing the man evoked a strong response from those who came into contact with him. The book features conversations, letters, photographs and poetry, and contributors include Allen Ginsberg, Anthony Clare, Ralph Metzner and Van Morrison.
