Having spent most of my working life within the secondary care mental health system, working with people with severe and enduring mental health difficulties, I particularly appreciated chapter 20 on the 'Life Lie and Responsibility in Neurosis and Psychosis'. A wonderful book for anyone who wants a different perspective of the relationship between personality development and psychopathology from the usual reductive contemporary approaches of modern psychiatry.

As someone who has worked with people mainly suffering from severe and enduring mental health problems for thirty two years I can vouch for the reliability of his ideas. In many ways Adler was a forerunner of the ideas of Thomas Szasz.
No one writer or theoretician can be relied on to cover all the bases, the being of human beings being more complex than any one theory. I believe as a minimum that Adler's ideas should be studied along with the work of Freud ,Jung and the neo Freudians including Horney and Kohut, by those who works with people with mental health problems.
This book gives an excellent account of Adler's main ideas on psychopathology and should be closely studied for anyone wishing to gain insight into the motivation and dynamics of psychopathology.
Would recommend this book for students.
