Hartmann is a well-known specialist in sleep disorders, addressing those and other issues from a psychodynamic viewpoint. His research on characteristics of people who suffer more nightmares than usual led him to a model of mental functioning that has proved useful in a number of fields, including second language learning. This book builds on his original work, Boundaries in the Mind. It should prove enlightening to the intellectually curious, especially those who want a better understanding of how we think and feel and who are interested in the effects of mental structure on personality.
