What if you found yourself working for an intelligence agency and suddenly your understanding of other human beings had become a matter of life or death? Yair Neuman draws us into a unique thought experiment, using portraits from some of Shakespeare's most stirring works to illustrate how our psychological understanding of human nature can be significantly enriched through literature. Provocative and engaging, Shakespeare for the Intelligence Agent: Toward Understanding Real Personalities invites you to a challenging, enjoyable, and in many cases humorous reading of human personality through Shakespeare's plays.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Lively, informed, accessible, and intellectually stimulating. Yair Neuman presents a fluid theory of personality as multiply constructed, contextual, and continually in flux." -- Amy Schwartz Cooney, PhD, National Institute for the Psychotherapies
"The synthesis of psychodynamic and biological perspectives on personality is useful, insightful, and original. Neuman moves smartly and persuasively among thinkers such as Bowlby, McWilliams, and Dylan Thomas." -- Marshall Alcorn, PhD, George Washington University
"Yair Neuman has produced a highly original book, full of scholarly insight and imaginative understanding. As he applies ideas about personality to the works of Shakespeare, he moves easily from psychology to literature and back again. This is a book to enjoy and learn from." -- Michael Billig, PhD, author of Freudian Repression: Conversation Creating the Unconscious
