5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Visual Summary Of Melanie Klein's Psychology, 17 April 1998
By A Customer
Dr. Hinshelwood, one of the world's leading proponents of Kleinian psychoanalysis, has produced an interesting and readable synopsis of the work of the noted psychoanalyst, Melanie Klein.

Often difficult to understand, Mrs. Klein's work is centred on the intrapsychic aspects of human development. This slim volume allows the reader an opportunity to appreciate some of the more complex aspects of Kleinian thought.

Having digested Dr. Hinshelwood's excellent text entitled "Clinical Klein", I found the visual depictions in "Introducing Melanie Klein" of some of the same cases described in his other work to be helpful and clarifying.

I would recommend any interested reader pick up both volumes and use the "Introducing..." book as a quick reference guide to the "Clinical..." text.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, clear, approachable introduction, 15 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent, clear, and user-friendly introduction to the life and work of the psychoanalyst Melanie Klein. Although I knew a little about the subject to begin with, I would guess that this book would be understandable by anyone without any prior knowledge. My only cavil is that it would be nice to have bit more textual content for the price. Nevertheless, very highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clears it up, 10 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Introducing Melanie Klein: A Graphic Guide (Paperback)
Needed desperately some clarity and this provided it. It became less flowing towards the end with the theory and life events converging unhelpfully.

5.0 out of 5 stars For psychology/psychotherapy/counselling students - an easy insight into a complex aspect of psycho analysis, 16 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Introducing Melanie Klein: A Graphic Guide (Paperback)
If you are new to study psychology or psychotherapy/counselling this book provides an easy introduction to the complex world of a difficult lady who had to fight for her right to be heard in the male dominated world that was psychoanalysis.
As co-author I may appear biased but I've only ever received £30 in royalties, my bias is not financially driven (publisher is making the money)

4.0 out of 5 stars a brief overview and a way in, 8 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The graphics enhance the text and bring the content alive.
This whistlestop tour through Klein, her life and her work would be great for anyone new to Klein, or for a refreshing of her ideas.
A pioneer.

If you are interested in Klein but have not studied her it is worth a read. Good for the layman.
