Bringing together concepts from psychoanalysis with an attentive eye and A. Rubinstein popular wisdom, Sports on the Couch explores the psychology of athletes and those around them. As a product of our culture, sport enables a break for our minds, since it allows us to disconnect from internal as well as external realities. We immerse ourselves in the world of play, managing to let out tensions and liberate a great deal of aggression in a socially acceptable way.

"This new collection of ideas by Ricardo Rubinstein opens a new and original field of reflection. Western culture, from its Graeco-Roman origins, has loved, valued and protected the tournament, the competition, and the desire to overcome physical and mental challenges. This book, written by a lover of sport, reveals new horizons of unpredictable partnership and development. The author has deep understanding of the levels of the psyche, tensions, traumas, fantasies and conflicts that sports bring into play. This book is indispensable and wonderfully enriching for those who have the joy of participating in one way or another in the universal game of sport." - Dr. Andres Sergio Rascovsky, psychoanalyst, and former present of the Argentine Psychoanalytic Association

"This book takes us on an impeccable and profound tour of all aspects of the sport phenomenon, with a psychoanalytic perspective that deals with scientific aspects, but also considers their psychological and emotional implications. And the author explains all this in simple and direct language in order to make it accessible to the general public. For this reason, it is highly recommended to all those readers who want to delve into the soul of the sport world from an original and thrilling perspective." - Horacio Pagani, TV, radio and newspaper journalist
