Review by:
Simon A. Grolnick

Not many psychoanalysts earn the privileged status of having their letters published. Freud, of course. But try to think of many others. The very fact that R. Robert Rodman, a creative psychoanalyst from the West Coast who has written two previous books of his own, took on this task and sold the idea to Harvard University Press says something about Winnicott. Currently, there is more and more interest in him as an important figure in the intellectual history of the psychoanalytic movement. His ideas are broad and multidisciplinary—sometimes seeming even more polymathic than the man himself.
