"This book is both powerful and sobering. It would serve as an excellent textbook for multicultural counseling classes. It could also be a resource for counselors who are critically examining their therapeutic work with minority clients or for institutions evaluating the services provided to these clients. Numerous examples throughout the book illustrate Ridley's points and help the text to come alive. This book and its message will be needed as long as minority clients have negative experiences in counseling due to counselors' unintentional racism."
