Review by:
M. Masud R. Khan

This book is an amalgam of papers written from 1967 onwards. They are of exceptional quality, and should be read by every analyst who has the courage to do so.

It is a great pity that although the book is titled 'Countertransference and Related Subjects', the papers on Countertransference are not kept in unity, but are interspersed with papers which are book reviews and other things. But this is such a small fault in a book which is of such immense self-exposure that ninety per cent of the establishment will never dare to undertake.

Given Searle's style of work, it is but natural that he should fundamentally talk about Countertransference, because his cases—I am referring particularly to Chapter nineteen, 'The Patient as Therapist to his Analyst'—compel him to present himself so that they can speak themselves.
