“A fascinating mixture of traditional psychoanalytic thinking with clinical strategies that even today would be considered creative and controversial, The Fifty-Minute Hour has never failed to capture the imagination. . . . No student’s education in psychotherapy is complete without reading this book. Decades after its original publication, it still stands as a pioneering landmark in the history of psychotherapy.”-John Suler

"I have written these tales from psychoanalysis to share with my readers some of the experiences I have had in pursuing what must surely be one of the strangest of all occupations. From a literally inexhaustible storehouse of material that increases each day, I have chosen a handful of stories that seem to me to illustrate something of the adventure of this fabulous profession, something of its romance and much of its practical detail. The common element in all of these tales is the self of the analyst. Each story deals finally with deployment of that self in the therapeutic enterprise, the adventures that befall it, and the effects exerted upon it by the actors and situations described."
