John Berger has written:

To heal somebody you need first to be an expert in recognising wounds.  Paul Gordon knows about the 100 despairs hidden behind the term
Flexibility, the emotional mutilations inflicted by the present global economy.  In this green oasis of a book there's a well of compassion.  It will help you help....

 

 

Peter Lomas wrote:

At a time when psychotherapy is a Tower of Babel with an ever-increasing variety of techniques, it is encouaging to find a quiet, sane acount of therapy  that bypasses superficial explanations. Gordon¹s thesis is that therapy is a moral endeavour rather than a technical one and he spells out the implications of this when working in te consulting room.   This lucid and chellenging book will be invaluable to anyone but I would particularly like to see it in the hands of students who are trying to understand the essentials of therapy.

Therapy Today said:  
This is a small book with a powerful message ...one that all therapists can benefit from reading.  It is scholarly, human and timely.
