I loved this book and read it in one sitting. it links psycho-analytical concepts to life stages, with some emphasis on Kleinian thought. I liked that Waddel makes extensive use of case studies and also makes links with literature. I wouldn't recommend it if you have read no psycho-analytical works as it assumes that you have some basic knowledge in this field. That said you by no means need to be a therapist to understand this book, you just need to be interested in therapy and in people.

Format: Paperback
This is a highly accessible text on the development of personality and the role of psychoanalysis. It is beautifully written, unfolding the inside story that is the inner life of the individual, and explores the way in which early interactions and experiences can have a profound effect on how we experience the world. Waddell uses illuminating case studies, as well as her own academic background in English Literature, to enliven and illustrate the work. Inside Lives is written with a clarity and simplicity of style that facilitates thinking about the underlying theories.

Margot writes is a beautifully poetic style, and at the same time she manages to put very complex ideas across.
