In this influential book, Karen Horney describes the ways that neuroses function as a peculiar struggle for life under adverse conditions -- and how psychotherapy can help people free themselves from maladaptive ideas and behaviors. Using examples from her practice and writing in clear, accessible prose, she illuminates psychological processes with insight and empathy.
