Reading Bion is a welcome addition to the NLP Teaching Series and provides a useful reference work for informed readers as well as those new to his ideas.

Vermote's overview ranges from a section situating the work in the extensive Bion literature, through the main chapters which provide a chronological introduction to Bion's work and the development of his clinical work and theory of thinking. He provides accessible explanations and quotes from Bion's texts and commentary by some of his devoted patients and adherents.

The organisation of the book seeks to help readers navigate the complexity and difficulty of reading Bion's texts.
