From the Back Cover
The late Carl Rogers, founder of the humanistic psychology movement, revolutionized psychotherapy with his concept of client-centered therapy. His influence has spanned decades, but that influence has become so much a part of mainstream psychology that the ingenious nature of his work has almost been forgotten. Houghton Mifflin is delighted to introduce this preeminent psychologist to the next generation with a new edition of this landmark book.

Outstanding open source supplmental resource for educating students on the humanistic perspective of counseling. You will not get such amazing detailed explanation for the client-centered/humanisitic perspective like this in any academic traditional textbook.
Every one of us wants to have a better life, and this is only acquired when you intentionally grow, but in other to grow you need to have balance in your life to be coherent so you'll become a person.
If you really like to read I certainly recommend you this book. I you would rather something shorter or a "light reading" look for something else.
He is one of the few therapists I have read, where I am constantly thinking about what he says in terms of my own patients and how I might see them and our interaction differently.
Rogers provides clear reasoning and sound arguments for his beliefs, though this reader walked away wondering if Rogers believed that one can only become a person through therapy. I would love someone to take the gist of Rogers' thinking and apply this to the bulk of the population.
Warning: the eBook version contains numerous typos, some of which are quite disconcerting. Whoever converted this old text to the Kindle format should be be admonished for their sloppy work. I would have rated the book lower because of these errors, but felt to do so was unfair to the author.
