D. W. Winnicott: A Biographical Portrait

Synopsis

"Kahr writes in a clear, flowing and economical way, revealing an honest, genuinely scientific, attitude of enquiry.... I recommend this book as a stimulus to discussion and further research on Winnicott's life and work." -- From the Foreword by Dr. Susanna Isaacs Elmhirst

"Without animus or blinding admiration, Kahr guides us towards seeing a Winnicott of flesh and history, a Winnicott of extraordinary resolve, as well as complicated weaknesses and tribulations. This biographical Winnicott now stands alongside the authorial Winnicott, giving us a new point of reference. By drawing a picture of Donald Winnicott's origins, Brett Kahr allows us to appreciate more deeply the bounds and dimensions of the originality of this extraordinary psychoanalyst." -- From the Introduction by Dr. George Makari
