So challenging I gave up - a first for me!
on 16 January 2016
If ever Ladybird books needed to get hold of a book and make it more accessible, this is it. I totally GET that Melanie Klein was an important and valuable analyst, but dear, sweet JESUS, this book is hard to read. It looks like it's been photocopied for one (it hasn't but it looks like that). The type is small, blurry, difficult to read, dense.
It's such a shame that a woman who did such valuable work, got her arse out of a love-less marriage and went forth and did her own thing at a time when women didn't really do that, well it's a shame her work isn't more accessible for thickos like me. A good theorist but not a good writer, sorry. I have never bought a book and not been able to crack it. So this is a first for me.
Only buy this book if you are an egg-head and like books that look like newspapers did circa 1914.
