Pilot & Boatswain

The book is a guide to the world of human decisions, drives and wishes written for psychologically minded teens. It's called "Pilot & Boatswain" with dedication to my son and daughter.

Pilot - a person with expert local knowledge qualified to take charge of a ship entering or leaving a harbor. Boatswain - a ship’s officer in charge of equipment and the crew. 

The book is based on the story of the sailor Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. Vicissitudes of fortune has isolated him from other people, so he couldn't derive pleasure from projective identification with men. 

Switches of his drives, described by the English writer, provide psychologically trustful description of psychodynamic system itself.
