This is a superb resource for those struggling to find understanding and relief from the bewilderment, instability and internal choas caused by inadequate early attachment/detachment. It's full of relevant, insightful perceptions, concepts and examples, taken from numerous, respected researchers/writers. It's well written, intelligent and realistic. The final chapters, dealing with individuals coping with the schizoid personality structure, are excellent. The experience of the schizoid often seems beyond description but Klein captures and communicates their reality very well. This is a useful text for anyone interested in the development of a person's 'sense of Self'.

Starting with the very beginnings of neurophysiological development in the foeutus and on through symbol formation, and on to adult life, this book takes you through the main concepts and fundamental building blocks of object relations and attachment theories. It does so in perfectly lucid and clear language, with admirable ethos e friendliness. It demonstrates clearly how we become who we are, through joy and pain and fear and courage. I regard this as a fundamental text to understand the adult consequences of pre-verbal events.
