Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Behind this excellent book lie six decades of an unparalleled clinical experience with the most severe mentally disturbed patients, as well as a close familiarity with the relevant literature. De Masi still stands today as a unique figure within the frame of psychoanalysis on such a trying area. His wisdom and insight come as a permanent gratification.

Knowledge, insight and sensibility. 11 Jan. 2013
By A.E. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author is clearly an authority in the subject.
Then again, this book is not only about facts and knowledge, De Masi shows true empathy, modesty and sensibility about his patients and their suffering.
