This is a wonderful classic, a sophisticated, wise, and useful book highlighting issues of infant and child development. One can open it up anywhere and learn something of value. The author nicely separates the internal world (“I am loveable-I matter and have value because I exist”) from the external world or environment (“I am worthwhile…I can handle myself and my environment with confidence and I have something to offer others”) – and she shows how the two worlds overlap.
