Paying Respects to the Sopranos: A Psychosocial Analysis

If you loved the series, you will love this book. The author, Christopher Vincent, does an amazing job of exploring Tony Soprano's psychological makeup throughout the six seasons of the show. His analysis of other characters, such as Carmela, Meadow, Anthony Jr., and Christopher lends new insights into the dynamics that took place as the series progressed. I highly recommend reading this book and then sit down and watch the series again.

This book was written during the year after the final episode aired. The other reviews were written about a year after that final episode. I have recently started to use Kindle free readers--on iPhone and PC--and decided to use this book to test Kindle. Both the book and the iPhone and PC Kindle readers get good reviews.

"Paying Respects...", for people who are not psychologists, will likely bring up ideas that non psychologists haven't considered. It did for me. Also, the author lists symbols that he found in the Sopranos...without providing his interpretation of these symbols. Which I liked. I had already considered most, but some were new to me. He also discusses threads that are found in the Sopranos that tie together scenes and story lines.

The last chapter, I feel, the author would delete and re-write, if he were to write the book today in 2013. Hind sight likely would provide new insights that he didn't have at the time. But, this doesn't detract from the value of this book. In fact, it's interesting to see just how much he "got" the Sopranos, so soon after the series ended. Because, as he writes on more than one occasion, this is a series to be contemplated, studied and thought about. Only then can a viewer see the layers of meaning and depth of the show. "Paying Respects..." will likely open new avenues of thought in this regard.

I recommend it!

The author's passionate appreciation and deep understanding of The Sopranos is apparent in his writing. As a psychotherapist with decades of experience, I was impressed with the depth of the author's understanding of psychology and sociology. As a reader, I loved the skillful way he analyzed the story of Tony's two families - it was both insightful and engaging. Thank you for keeping us connected to The Sopranos - a world we came to know and love.

Topic From this Discussion
I'm looking forward to reading it. I hope it embraces the interpretation that any fan who really understands the show truly knows-that Tony Soprano died in the exact moment when the screen cut to black.

There could be no true understanding of the meaning and themes of the show unless that basic... Read More
