'It is rare to find a practising psychoanalyst who is also ready to challenge, with great subtlety and no axe to grind, certain aspects of analytical orthodoxy . . . Phillips is one of the most intelligent and humane of psychoanalytic writers, and Terrors and Experts contains a great number of thought-provoking and sometimes brilliant ideas.' Alain de Botton, Sunday Telegraph

'Phillips boldly goes where few analysts have gone before, delighting in the riddles of the psyche and dreaming of an analytic set-up which would ditch dubious expertise and invite a camaraderie based on sharing terrors.The brew of gaiety, compassion, exuberance and idealism is heady and disarming.' Roy Porter, Sunday Times
