Bad first: sadly, the Kindle edition is really messy, containing numerous typos. That's the only reason I'm knocking a star off my review - don't let this put you off, as the text is a five-star effort.

A marvelously illuminating exposition of shame and its siblings, jealousy and rage. I was particularly impressed with the deft integration of classical psychoanalytic theory and modern evolutionary psychology, a conceptual pairing that lends the ideas even greater explanatory power.

Even if you don't have a formal interest in psychoanalysis, this is engaging stuff, and the source of a great deal of potential personal insight. It's occasionally painful to read, testament to the power of its subject matter. Mollon's sensitivity and craft keep you on the page however, even when the going's tough. Well done!

A well written yet accessible book about shame and the negative effects it has on us. Suitable for psychodyamic practioners and non-specialists.

I was surprised how much this book spoke to me and how relevant it has been in client work. It was such an easy read in many ways but very difficult in others.
