3.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive but not user friendly, June 1, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Motivational Interviewing, Second Edition: Preparing People for Change (Hardcover)
Motivational interviewing is all about understanding your audience and helping them help themselves. It is all about speaking in a compelling way that relates to your listeners. While this book is very good at laying the foundations of "Motivational interviewing" in a comprehensive way, it totally misses the mark when it comes to doing what it claims to be teaching. This book is just not friendly. I found it very hard to read through the book and actually learn something practical I could later implement. I would therefore not recommend this book to anyone but true professionals who can deal with an academic style publication. I think it is even better for people with prior background in the field.
