Format: Mass Market Paperback
Although I still have one-third of the Book left to read--- I was curious as to what other's opinions are of it....which is why I am here... For myself, I wonder how different the 'dynamics' of the Group might have been, if more *average* people were represented.
For example---would there be totally different "problems"(and group Dynamics) if a client were from poor family (and was still relatively poor?) Or....do *we* all basically "suffer" from the SAME type problems NO MATTER WHAT are childhood/lifestyles were?
I would have liked to have seen/read about a more diverse Group---with poor, white/non-white paticipants mixed -in....
(But---then again, arguably some of *neediest* clients can not afford his $175 rate (per group meeting!) And so-- I get the point that the "elite" have just as many problems as the "less-advantaged"....but still--it would have been nice to see the relationships evolve between the two 'classes'. (and what pre-concieved ideas ideas each 'class' has/d about the other....)
Other than that limitation, I find it to be a good read.

I used this book to supplement my studies for an addiction degree, I found it extremely helpful and the personalities were believable as well as the consequences of using or drinking. The author kept the reading lively and it was not hard to stay focused even for someone like me who might have a slight case of attention deficit disorder. I would highly recommend this book for someone who was interested in therapy of any form. I would also recommend this book for someone who has an addiction and would just like to read about the experience, strength and hope of others as well as those who do not utilize a twelve step recovery program.

I really enjoyed this book. It is written in an easily readible style that compels you to keep reading. I started to feel as if I knew the characters. I was happy for the successes and disappointed in the failures. I was especially disheartened when the therapist proved to be "human" as well. A must read for anyone interested in discovering themselves or in the psychotherapy profession!
