This review is from: Winnicott (Kindle Edition)
Wow. Adam Phillips shows how it should be done with an extremely well researched, lucidly written and creatively presented account of the life and work of D. Winnicott. Phillips manages to extract and present what is useful and good from the body of work, deftly weaving his most significant contributions with rigorous critique within a cogently presented theoretical context. I've just finished reading it for the second time and I must say, I'm very grateful that this book has been written, as I now have a solid feel for Winnitott's developmental and psychoanalytic model. What's I found most valuable of all was the way Phillips portrays Winnicott's attitude and personality - it's hard to not get a sense for the man and, as daft as I must sound, DW comes across as a real Dude, especially considering all the Kleinian / Freudian silliness that was going on in British Psychoanalytic Society at the time he presided. A great book and an enjoyable read.
