Description

Imagine spending an evening with the icons of a profession and you begin to appreciate what Rubin Battino has fashioned in his literary play on the life of Milton H. Erickson, M.D. Using this dramatic device, like a Greek dialogue, Battino applies the same approach he used in his highly successful bioplay of Viktor Frankl: Meaning. The voices of Dr. Erickson, his family, Margaret Mead, Stanley Milgram, John Weakland, Jay Haley, and many, many others resonate in the reader s mind. Using Erickson s own words, and the words of his contemporaries, the scenes cover his early life and professional development, his family experiences, his professional interactions, and even some classic cases. All of the sequences play out with a wide range of effects, from warmly anecdotal and profoundly insightful, to dramatically intense, sometimes humorous, and even lyrical. Complimenting the text are many, many photographs: some never seen by the general public. For the reader well versed in Erickson s life, this will be a pleasant experience; for those unaware of the events that shaped the man and his achievements, this book will be a revelation.
