About the Author
This second edition stands out front as a unique exceptionally thoughtful integrated summary of Winnicott's work. Tuber carefully identifies what is essential for students and clinicians to know and brings to it a coherence that piecemeal study would never achieve. This book is a wonderful presentation of Winnicott's work, from which both Winnicott and the author emerge with immense distinction.

This is one of the few must-have books that no self-respecting psychotherapist should be without. There is something very special about Tuber’s capacity, not just to communicate Winncott’s ideas in a profound yet accessible way, but perfectly to embody his playful, creative brilliance. Each chapter moves seamlessly from exposition of a seminal Winnicott concept –the capacity to be alone, the necessity of hate, the use of an object, ruthlessness, true and false self -- through vivid contemporary up-dating, to detailed and truth-imbued clinical illustrations of work with children of varying ages, ethnicities and pathologies. As the man himself might have said: ‘hello glorious book, I’ve just devoured you’!

Steve Tuber’s brilliant ode to Winnicott, now enriched with clinical material drawn from the work of beginning psychotherapists, brings the work of this master alive in all its richness and magic. I can think of no better interpreter of Winnicott for psychotherapists at all levels of training; this is a masterpiece.
