Review:

..."I believe that all psychotherapists would benefit from this book, regardless of level of experience. Graduate students would benefit as well because it is never too early to learn from the mistakes of others. The authors and contributors are more than credible authorities in the field. They are the experts, the movers and shakers in the field of psychotherapy research and practice...The book is simply delightful. The contributors, well-known experts in the field, are very candid and it is obvious that they have reflected on and learned from their mistakes. It is very readable and enjoyable. I found myself not being able to put it down. It is a book that you can easily learn from and I believe it should be required reading for courses in psychotherapy.."
-"Doody Review, January 2003
"This book is a must read for students of therapy of all ages and persuasions - a casebook of how to fall in your face and get up knowing more than before the fall."
-David E. Scharff, M.D., International Institute of Object Relations Therapy and co-author of "Object Relations Individual Therapy
"With astounding candor and with a great deal of humility, twenty-two of the world's master therapists reveal their worst mistakes and failures, and guess what? They are the same ones all of us make. Every psychotherapist will learn from these revelations and will be more empowered to be more confident and humble. You must read this book; you and your clients will greatly benefit."
-Nicholas A. Cummings, Ph.D., Sc.D., Former President of the American Psychological Association, author of 23 books including, "Focused Psychotherapy: A Casebook of Brief, Intermittent Psychotherapy T
"This book isa comfort to those of us who practice the "impossible art" of psychotherapy, because it shows how to admit mistakes, study why we made them, and become better therapists in the process. These cases are worth several graduate courses in psychotherapy."
-William J. Doherty, Ph.D., Director, Marriage and Family Therapy Program at the University of Minnesota, and author of "Soul Searching: Why Psychotherapy Must Promote Moral Responsibility
"Jeffrey Kottler and Jon Carlson beautifully guide several outstanding therapists to be exceptionally candid about some of their worst cases. Not only will this book be very helpful to other practicing therapists, but also to general readers... A forthright and unusually valuable book!."
-Albert Ellis, Ph.D., President, Albert Ellis Institute, New York City and the author of "A Guide to Rational Living
