Paris has attempted in this book to bring all that is available about Horney’s thinking on analytic technique together, and it is unfortunate that the result is rather like viewing the ruins of a Greek temple: a pillar here, a wall there, a carving over there; the elements of a beautiful building are there, but one would like to have been able to see the whole thing all together. Paris has collected published and unpublished papers (including the negative therapeutic reaction paper). In addition, he has mined the back issues of the American Journal of Psychoanalysis (published by the "Horney Institute") for reconstructions of some of her last lectures by her students, including Ralph Slater, Morton B. Cantor, Louis A. Azorin, Emy A. Metzger, Joseph Zimmerman, Wanda Willig, and Sara Sheiner. The outline of a possible book on technique is thus sketched, but really only sketched. Horney’s writing in English was clear and down-to-earth, easily readable and devoid of psychoanalytic jargon. She made her ideas accessible, and if she had lived to pull together her thinking about how to do psychoanalytic therapy, one can imagine that the result would have been a clear and readable account.
