From our regular book review column.

Daniel Siegel is a psychotherapist, and from what I know about him, an excellent one. He is also a child psychiatrist who is very knowledgeable about memory research, early attachment and its effects on emotional development, the latest neurobiological theory relating to cognition and emotion, and the way in which each of the latter may influence symptom formation and interpersonal relationships. I bought the book before I was sent a copy for review; I knew that this book was one I should keep handy when I wanted to improve my understanding of information on which the future science of psychiatry will be based.
