I find D.W. Winnicott's writing style easy to follow.
This book is particularly enlightening in this respect in its chapter on compensating the deprived child for the loss of family life, much like Bowlby's writing about fostering in the out of print Childcare and The Growth of Love.
The book's first half outlines the importance to emotional development of family life and some of the consequences to the individual of disruptive patterns of parenting, family psychosis or depressive illness. The second half of the book deals with advice to parents, casework with mentally ill children, deprivation, group influence, maladjustment and even democracy.
Emotional development has major consequences for an individual's resilence or vulnerability to life stress, this point is made clearly by Winnicott and I think any individual or family could benefit from the insights they could get from this book.
While it could be considered of a more literary value in comparison with other more recent developmental psychology reads on attachment and attunement like Daniel J. Siegel, it is a very readable, accessible and interesting account. It's one of the most accessible of Winnicott's books which I would recommend to anyone casual reader, student or professional.
The book has a great contents, huge and exacting index and some great further sources from the range of routledge classics on related topics.
