Object Relations Theory and Clinical Psychoanalysis by Otto F. Kernberg

As usual, Im reviewing this because there are no others yet, not because Im really qualified to do so.

The mere fact that youre reading this review indicates that (1) you dont need to be warned in advance that a book with Clinical Psychoanalysis in the title is a tough read, and (2) reading it will be worth your time anyway. Even as a tourist, I found that this book usefully clarified important concepts and suggested many further lines of inquiry. Kernberg here is admirably painstaking in teasing out where he has followed earlier theorists and where he parts ways with them and why; my to-read list ballooned while I was reading this book. He also repeats himself excessively from chapter to chapter, but in this case that is a good thing as it helps the important concepts to sink in. Im a completist glutton-for-punishment myself, but non-specialists could absolutely be forgiven for skipping the long final chapter on hospital administration. The remainder of the book is unequivocally recommended.
