Families and How to Survive Them Translated from the English by Claude Farny et Camille Cantoni. Publication date : June 1, 2000

How do we choose our partners? Why do we fall in love? What is the role played by each partner within a couple? How do we behave with our children? How can our children grow up to become well-balanced adults? ....And what is it that makes sex so important? These are some of the simple, basic questions that the renowned family psychotherapist Robin Skynner and his former patient, the comedian John Cleese, have chosen to discuss in a series of lively conversations that address serious issues in a practical, humorous manner.

Robin Skynner, a psychotherapist, is one of the pioneers of group therapy in Britain and the founder of the Institute of Family Therapy, in London.

British comic actor John Cleese is also a renowned script writer and a member of the Monty Python team of comedians.

Skynner and Cleese are the co-authors of Life and How to Survive It, published by Editions Odile Jacob.
