“…this text is a necessary tool for a school counselor’s professional library….I tell my students this is one book they do not want to resell.”

I am judging the book by only reading Chapter 1.
This is a horrible textbook. Besides not having any illustrations, the spelling is awful! So awful that I had to reread the sentence/paragraph again because of how frustrated I was! What 3rd edition Master level textbook has so many mistakes! Chapter 1 had so many mistakes that I stopped counting. For example, page 7 paragraph 3 has 3 misspelled words: stregthened (instead of strengthened), orginal (instead of original), and acheivement (instead of achievement). Oh did I mention that the book obviously does not know how to spell achievement because it was misspelled numerous times throughout chapter 1! I am so disappointed that a book used for my masters class had so many obvious mistakes. The publisher needs a new editor or a better speller checker program!

The information in the book is quite useful. Although this is the case, the reading can be dry at times.

This book was required for class. I can't say I've read it from cover to cover and they authors go into waaaay too much detail about the topics to be useful....I'm looking for application....not all theory.

Book was helpful for my graduate class. It taught me what I needed to know and was actually an interesting read as this is what I was concentrating my counseling degree on.

The chapter orders are very different from the latest edition, but it still has all the necessary information I needed to complete my class at a much lower price point.
