"What gives the book its special character is its skilful weaving together of a rigorous theoretical stance with the enjoyable, communicative skills displayed in his clinical work, and which one seems to witness in person, as though crouching in a corner of the analyst's mind. It is not easy to describe Ferro's writing skills, which are like those of a great musician who can allow himself the virtuosities while never for a moment forgetting, or lessening, the technical clarity of his performance." - Anna Ferruta, International Journal of Psychoanalysis
