Editorial Reviews

Review


"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

This was assigned reading for a class I took with the writer a few years ago and after reading I realized how truly intelligent he was. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone I meet.

Professor Ogilvie knows a lot about the subject and certainly has put his knowledge into the book. I think the book is definitely worth reading, especially if you're interested particularly in the personality area in Psych.

Format: Hardcover
The book is bad. Real bad. He makes his students buy it for his class because that is the only way he can sell it. He takes the most broad stories and turns them into a theory of flying that makes no sense. Just a pointless book about nothing that can NOT help anyone in any aspect of life.
