This is a beautiful summary on extraordinary women pioneer analysts made by Janet Sayers in back in 1993 and still a great resource today.
“In lucid, uncluttered prose, Janet Sayers presents the reader with a fresh viewing of the lives and times of four extraordinary women pioneer analysts. Sayers recounts how they were able to shift the theoretic balance of the day to include the creative evolution of their thinking. This book is of value not only for the novice, but certainly for many others who can learn from these excellent, abridged biographies.” —Dr. Helene DeRosis
