Weil sich bisher keine deutsche Rezension findet, schreibe ich jetzt eine. Außerdem ist mir keine deutsche Übersetzung bekannt, weshalb der interessierte Leser mit dem englischen Original vorlieb nehmen muss. Um eine Vorstellung zu bekommen was dein Einzelnen erwartet, empfehle ich die Rezension von "rareoopdvds" zu lesen. Unter der Produktinformation finden sich sowohl die Seitenanzahl (96), als auch die Buchmaße wieder. Und so bekommt man für 12.95($) bzw. 11,34(€) also weder Quantität, noch Substanz. Es gibt kleine kompakte Bücher, welche trotz weniger Worte das Herz treffen. Das vorliegende Werk gehört nicht dazu.

Famed radical psychologist R.D. Laing's bizarre, one-of-a-kind (or at least first of its kind) book consists of five chapters of increasingly weird 'knots' - internal conversations that develop into obsessive debates. Laing uses his deceptively flat, simple style to brilliantly shed light on the way the mind works, and most of all the way it deals with relationships. It starts out easy enough to follow, but watch out - in the second chapter Laing turns the 'If it is me, it is not mine' knot into a masterpiece of convoluted reasoning, actually numbering each line and turning them into impossibly complex diagrams. Next comes the 'There is something Jack knows that Jill does not, but he does not know he does not know...' knot, which might prompt you to hurl the book at the wall after six pages of interminable mental gymnastics. But once you've made it through that, the rest of the book is a breeze, and the fifth chapter, the most opaque, is even a little disturbing. After you close the book, beware of turning every question that pops into your head into a knot - it starts to get a bit compulsive!

'Knots' is Laing's dark, ultra-perceptive account of human relationships. Taking observed situations and distilling them into sets of exact, clear sentences, Laing achieves just the balance between the specific and the general to ensure that you will recognise each portrait either in your acquaintances or, most disturbingly, in yourself. Broadly mirroring the pattern of a life, from a child's observation of adults, through adult sexual relationships and finally to the nihilistic aspects of old age, 'Knots' was and still is a ground-breaking work, and when taken in context with Laing's other writings, forms a formidable source of insight into daily life.

She thinks I bought this book cause she bought this book. He thinks I bought this book cause he bought this book. She thinks I bought this book cause she likes this book cause she bought this book. He thinks I bought this book cause he likes this book cause I like this book. She thinks that he likes this book cause I bought this book. He thinks that she likes this book cause I bought this book. If she thinks that I bought this book cause she likes this book and she bought this book, then I must not have bought it. She must have bought it for me.
(R.D. Laing's poetry inspired by schizophrenic thinking is a masterpiece in its own way. Wonderfully exhibits the way many people think and have internal conversation that is tied up in knots).

Jill and Jack both want to be wanted
Jill wants Jack because he wants to be wanted Jack wants Jill because she wants to be wanted
Jill wants Jack to want *Jack to want Jack's want of her want for his want of her want of
Jack's want that Jill want Jack to want Jill to want Jack's want of her want for his want of her to want Jack to want*
*repeat sine fine

One interminable little book Mr. Laing put together. RDL has fabricated a vis-à-vis discourse between Jack and Jill, which develops into a permutation poem akin to the late Brion Gysin. However, readers, be prepared. RDL may seem like a page turner at first glance, but the trick here is to read between the lines ---as always. "Irony" is the word for today, especially after reading Knots.

This is a book of many clever twists based on very simple subjects. As the name suggests, Mr. Laing amusingly ties and unties knots with common words and phrases. He will have you laughing one moment, and reading out loud the next. You will certainly want to share this book with friends. If you like brain teasers and abstract humor, get tied up in Knots.

Dr. Laings book, Knots, illustrates in terms we can easily understand the unusual complexities of human relationships, particularly involving loving or not loving. With apparent child-like simplicity Dr. Laing demonstrates for us what is intuitively complex and daunting. He clarifies what for us is emotional and psychological, using the knot as a metaphore for what we want to see about our relationships that is clouded and only vaguely sensed. To clarify is to confirm. To make visible what is troubling is to give the reader respect for their intuition and possibly even a grasp of how to deal with our relations with each otherl. The power of understanding our relating to others is here in a short text from which we can begin to unknot our mental perplexity and achieve for ourselves satisfying or at the very least, understood, relations with those we love.

The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity. This book is underrated at 5 stars. This is man's last thought before the flood, a secular prophecy. It's all too intense to read this book according to Miss Marion Jane's interpretation.
