Anthony Storr's accessible and humane account of the art of psychotherapy has been widely read by practitioners in training and others in the helping professions, as well as many general readers. The second edition includes a thoroughly revised account of the obsessional personality, and a new chapter that draws on the author's recent work on the importance of the processes of healing that take place within the isolated individual.


"While explicitly directed toward physicians beginning psychiatric training, `The Art of Psychotherapy' in fact provides an accessible overview of psychotherapeutic practice. Seldom have `outsiders' had the opportunity to peer over the therapist's shoulder and into his mind. . . . His writing exhibits that . . . brand of enlightenment and common sense that is likely to surface only after decades of intensive work, accompanied by skillful observation and introspection. Like few other works, `The Art of Psychotherapy' speaks with one voice to individuals outside the field and to those with well-honed skills." -- New York Times Book Review

". . . compelling humanistic study." -- Psychology Today

"In this new book [Storr] turns his attention to helping the young psychiatrist in training to answer the question, What on earth am I to do? The answer is simple: Begin by reading Dr. Storr's book. . . . This is an excellent book, highly recommended. It will also be of great interest to the experienced clinician who is busy with patients day in and day out." -- American Journal of Psychiatry

"Masterful." -- Boston Globe

"This book will surely assist the therapeutic novice, whether he's lying on the couch or sitting by it." -- Quarto

"The work of a naturally gifted writer and very wise psychotherapist. . . . All chapters are profound, human, and sympathetic accounts of human vagaries and how they can be understood and sometimes helped. Beginner psychotherapists should read it, and more than once, to get an inkling of the art to which they are aspiring." -- The Lancet

"This is one of the few truly human books on the subject." -- The Spectator (London)
