Will Power!: Using Shakespeare's Insights to Transform Your Life

George Weinberg, Author, Dianne Rowe, With St. Martin's Press $22.95 (231p) ISBN 978-0-312-14764-8
Taking a novel approach to understanding the psyche, psychotherapist Weinberg (Self-Creation) and former S&S v-p Rowe consult the works of Shakespeare, whom they deem ""the ultimate therapist."" Illustrating the relevance of Shakespeare to the complexities of the 1990s through the diverse characters of Othello, Portia, Falstaff et al. are six sections that treat self-knowledge, romance and other relationships. It is the authors' mission to correlate Shakespeare's depiction of the stages of psychological evolution in his characters with contemporary challenges that, they claim, are in essence similar. Weinberg and Rowe aver that the former's Shakespeare-oriented therapy satisfies the needs of clients embarking on their psychological journeys. The prescriptions, which include ""method living""--finding a match for one's own experience in the psyche of another--are lightly tendered and may invite a deeper acquaintance with the Bard and the power of Will. First serial to Cosmopolitan; QPB selection; audio rights to Renaissance. (Oct.)
