"Daniel Ogilvie has written and lively and interesting book about the origins and psychological correlates of a common human fantasy theme." --Journal of the Hisory of the Behavioral Sciences
"A book that carries on the fine tradition of psychobiography envisioned by Henry Murray and other early personologists. His book is an interesting mix of general theorizing and engaging psychobiography. I suspect that both students and professional psychologists will be delighted with this book."--Bill Peterson, Smith College
"...Ogilvie constructs his argument for the value of case studies with clever wit, especially in his chapter on women's flight fantasies, revealing the "rough edges" of Mary Poppins that were glossed over in the Disney version." --Choice
"There is every chance that this study can become one of the first classics of twenty-first century psychology...Ogilvie's writing style is clear, readable, colloquial, and filled with humor. He draws the reader in, keeps the reader with him, and makes the reader want to keep going."--James W. Anderson, Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology, Northwestern University
