"In this startlingly original psychological inquiry, a renowned child psychiatrist shows why play, so essential to the developing child, fills an equally important function in our adult lives. For those adults who don't yet play, Beyond Love and Work can be considered a hot-to book. For those adults who do play, they can gain insight into what they're doing, because mature play, we learn, doesn't originate in a vacuum. It develops from childhood avoidances, losses, wishes, preferences, even rebellions."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
