"A delightful book to read not only for its representations of commonly seen psychiatric problems and their treatment, but also because it is so literate.
- Howard A. Winkler, M.D., Journal of the American Medical Association
"Basch is an important thinker, a clear writer, and, based on the data in this book, a gifted clinician."
- Robert Michels, M.D., The American Journal of Psychiatry
"Basch's wit and humanity shine through; he is no doubt a fine therapist and an excellent teacher. This book is a must for students and teachers of psychotherapy and should be in the library of every beginning therapist."
- Contemporary Psychology
"A readable, anecdotal volume about the everyday work of practicing therapists…a helpful companion to those undergoing, or considering, treatment."
- Psychology Today
Using human, compelling cases that bring the process of psychotherapy alive, a gifted psychiatrist shows what psychotherapy is and how and why it works.
