"This is a remarkable book. I know of no other work that so intelligently embraces and illuminates the complexities of the ego-Self relationship." — Nathan Schwartz-Salant, Ph.D., author of Narcissism and Character Transformation: The Psychology of Narcissistic Character Disorders
"An exciting, challenging work that helps us look beyond our smaller attitudes and seek a broader, fuller path. Uplifting and therapeutic." — Michael Eigen, Ph.D., Associate Clinical Professor of Psychology at New York University and Editor Emeritus of The Psychoanalytic Review
"This book is a tour de force that under one cover includes selections from all of Howe’s writings. Howe illuminates the causes of human suffering by using the language of psychoanalysis to help us understand the mystery of human experience. It is a wonderful book for both psychotherapists and the general reader to gain greater understanding of what it means to be human." — John M. Heaton, M.D., author of The Talking Cure: Wittgenstein's Therapeutic Method for Psychotherapy
"... Because psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, and psychiatry came of age in a secularized world, these are typically regarded as a matter unto themselves, both generated and cured without reference to our spiritual nature. In this landmark and vitally necessary book, the great English psychiatrist E. Graham Howe not only disproves that presumption but provides us with our era’s first truly esoteric and integral psychology. Graciously written, profoundly wise, The Druid of Harley Street is itself an instructive, healing, and liberating meditation that should be in the hands of every psychotherapist—and by the bedsides of the rest of us." — Andrew Harvey, author of A Walk with Four Spiritual Guides: Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, and Ramakrishna and The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism
"Among the pathfinders of modern psychology, E. Graham Howe was unique in recognizing that, in addition to being the highest biological life form on Earth, human beings are also manifestations of an immanent and omnipresent creative principle, or spirit. Whether discussing relationship or neurosis or schizophrenia or therapy, Howe never lets us forget that the integration of our dual nature is the necessary means and ultimate goal of the growth process. William Stranger's lucid introduction and deft editing afford us an in-depth and most satisfying look at the work of this profound visionary." — Gabor Maté M.D., author of In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters With Addiction
