"They've laid out an excellent game plan in plainspoken English with an upbeat tone that encourages progress. Bullet points, sidebars and questions act as convenient yield signs along the way, giving readers a moment to recall and reflect. Even if "active listening" is second nature, it "can't hurt to revisit the basics." As a primer, reference or for regular practice, this guide contains all the tools needed for friends in need."

I suspect almost everyone reading this review has felt the need--or been called on--at some point in their lives to help a friend or colleague in distress. Ranieri and Gurkoff new book provides the perfect primer to guide the well-intentioned but clueless helper.
If all you could think of when asked for help is, `Gee, maybe you should see a therapist', now you have something else to say: `Let me see if I can help.' I felt enormously empowered and inspired reading their book. Their advice obviously comes from both the head and the heart -- and reflects their years of clinical experience and insight.
In many respects, and sadly so, How Can I Help? arrives in a time when it's wise counsel is especially needed. We've witnessed so many tragic events as this year draws to a close. The collective desire on the part of Americans to reach out and help those in distress and despair has been palpable. If you are in that boat, this wise and practical primer will take you through the stages of an effective helping process. If you hope your actions will have an impact, you'll be glad you read this book--and the person you helped even more so! I recommend the book highly and without reservation.
