This author's work is always fascinating and thought-provoking . This book is well worth the time to read, especially for those who treat patients with severe personality disorders. I particularly enjoyed his efforts at bringing together neurobiology, affect theory, and psychoanalytic thought . This is an excellent addition to Dr. Kernberg's lexicon and I strongly recommend it. * Brett Plyler, M.D., Doody Enterprises, Inc. * Kernberg's The Inseparable Nature of Love and Aggression: Clinical and Theoretical Perspectives could more accurately be titled 'The Very Best of Otto F. Kernberg.' It will be thoroughly enjoyed and valued as an outstanding clinical and theoretical textbook by any experienced clinician and academician who recognizes the conceptual value of the unconscious and is already familiar with the basic tenets of psychodynamic and object relations theory. * Gregory Mavrides, PsycCRITIQUES May 15, 2013 *
