This is a book that can be enjoyed by almost any reader. All the authors write in simple English with very little jargon. All the cases presented demonstrate clearly how good analytic therapy has the power to bring about radical change in the patient's life, and four of the cases are especially remarkable in that the patient's voice is heard telling what he or she experienced. There is little or nothing of this to be found elsewhere. All the authors and patients are to be commended for their courage. Dr. Schachter has done us all a great favor in putting this volume together. Professionals as well as prospective patients will find much of value in this volume.
