“This is clearly a book written by an expert therapist… [F]ull of practical advice, common-sense wisdom and self-disclosure… His advice to and support for beginning therapists is not only compassionate but also inspiring… [E]xtremely readable and the cases so interesting that it could be read also by non-specialists, by anybody who is interested in human nature and human relationships. Highly recommended for psychologists as well as for educators.”
“The clear writing style makes it easy to read and sensitively approaches a variety of subject areas. . . . A must buy for those in training and also for lecturers.”

I closed the book thinking it was one of the most helpful texts ever assigned in my psych program. I think every budding therapist should read it -- it really makes you think about your own thoughts, feelings, biases, and process. I would venture to say that it is probably the best exploration of countertransference available, and that every therapist or clinicial needs to think deeply about the countertransference and other personal issues he or she brings to their sessions by giving this book a read.
I do, however, believe the book needs an index and an editor to streamline it a bit for organization purposes.
