The style is clear and well-presented; the explanation is straightforward but not simplistic, and the examples given all seem helpful and constructive. The book reviews and details all the major elements of ACT, usefully explaining the links and relations between them as parts of the "hexaflex" comprising the main processes.
I would very much recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in starting to understand ACT and how it might usefully be applied within the therapeutic relationship, and although I wouldn't recommend starting to *practice* from it (there are other, better, materials for that I'm sure) at the very least all readers will be much better informed to judge if they want to take their interest further or not.
The style and tone are suitable for most readers, though naturally a familiarity with some form of therapy or other will be advantageous because it's a book about doing ACT as opposed to a book about doing therapy in general. As a result it rather 'takes for granted' that readers will understand the overall context of the relationship between the parties involved in ACT. That said, of course, if you are interested in neither ACT nor therapy in general I would imagine this book isn't likely to appeal to you in the first place, so the fact that some of the relevant context is assumed isn't really a criticism.
The acceptance and defusion has especially been helpful for me and in client work. The mindful ness is also something that sits well with my life at this time.
