`[This book′s] fundamental thesis is a rather challenging one - the idea that the unified, singular "self", which we all take for granted we possess, does not exist... fascinating and important... I will certainly revisit the book... when you′re ready for a challenge, this book is certainly worth dipping into′ - Counselling News

With the emergence of postmodern thinking, the notion of a unified, singular `self′ appears increasingly problematic. Yet for many, postmodernism′s proclamation of `the death of the subject′ is equally problematic. As a response to this dilemma, there has been a rise of interest in pluralistic models of the `self′ in which the person is conceptualized as a multiplicity of subpersonalit

Review:

`I thoroughly recommend this book. I found it challenging, provocative, exciting and full of delights. (It makes such a change to be told that ideal personality characteristics would include a Monty Pythonesque sense of humour and a tolerance of mood-altering drugs!) While reading it I often felt nourished and refreshed.... So I advise you to give the many selves you are a treat, and read this book' - The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy

`[This book's] fundamental thesis is a rather challenging one - the idea that the unified, singular "self," which we all take for granted we possess, does not exist... fascinating and important.... I will certainly revisit the book... when you're ready for a challenge, this book is certainly worth dipping into' - Counselling News

`A useful contribution to a field that is as important as it is impenetrable, the nature of lived experience' - Counselling

`The perspectives articulated in this book are important, the chapters are well written, and many of the ideas are intriguing. It is a useful book that should appeal to students and researchers in personality-social psychology, and therapists who are interested in relevant therapeutic techniques and their theoretical and empirical background.' - Personality and Individual Differences

`I thoroughly recommend this book. I found it challenging, provocative, exciting and full of delights.
