Review:

"In this volume, Mike Nichols tells the story of family therapy - and tells it very well. It's hard to imagine a more readable and informative guide to the field. . . . It is a thorough and thoughtful, fair and balanced guide to the ideas and techniques that make family therapy such an exciting enterprise. Dr. Nichols has managed to be comprehensive without being tedious. Perhaps the secret is the engaging style of his writing . . . this superb book has long set the standard of excellence as the best introduction and guide to the practice of family therapy."

Salvador Minuchin, M.D.Boca Raton, FL
