IN THE ANALYST'S CONSULTING ROOM. By Antonino Ferro, M.D. Translated by Philip Slotkin. East Sussex, England/New York: Routledge, 2002. 164 pp.

Review by:
Gail S. Reed

Editor's Note: In conjunction with the following book review, the reader may wish to refer to Antonino Ferro's article, “Which Reality in the Psychoanalytic Session?”, pp. 421-442 of this issue of The Psychoanalytic Quarterly.

It is a rare pleasure to come across a psychoanalytic book as rich and as stimulating as this one. It is rarer still to find in it so much of clinical value when the apparent theoretical perspective of its author differs from one's own. Nevertheless, such is the clinical detail and imaginative scope of Antonino Ferro's In the Analyst's Consulting Room that it leaves one feeling a more potentially competent analyst for having read it.

Ferro comes out of the Kleinian tradition, but it is Bion, particularly the latter's ideas on the transformation of protoemotions into thinking, who has had the most profound influence on him. Numerous references in the text and in the bibliography make that influence clear.
