Filled with clinical vignettes that bring her writings to life, the book cognently addresses such disparate topics as diagnosis, the superego, and silence, as well as the important of spirituality. The title essay, which opens the book, is justly famous–a close analysis of an apparently hopeless, elderly patient, Coltart's dramatic intervention, and the remarkable resluts of the case.
