Format: Paperback
My interest is in the use of personality types in the workplace, so I may not be from the authors' preferred audience for this book, which is written by therapists, for therapists or therapy students. However, similar problems apply in the workplace, where a range of typologies are in popular use, each with its own rather blinkered proponents. This book is very worthwhile, bringing order to the topic in a readable and clear manner. The reasons why we should define people in terms of character types at all are examined, and the main approaches summarised.
However, despite these attactions it should be noted that the book is very short - only 119 pages of text. Some elements, particularly post-Reichian character positions and Jungian structures, appear to get a more thorough treatment than others which are covered very briefly, presumably on the basis of the authors' personal interests.
The final chapter makes some rather tentative attempts to find grounds for integrating different theories. I wasn't convinced, but also felt that more could perhaps have been said. If I use one model as a primary categorisation, what might the other models usefully tell me in addition? I'll have to work that out for myself.

Clear, thought-provoking, well-written. An excellent introduction for students of psychotherapy and counselling with plently to take away and help develope your own views rather than a simple DIY manual of psychological types.

Format: Paperback
i am glad that i have this little gem.

the chapters on psychoanalysis and jung are excellent and well-researched but the rest of the book deals with psedoscientific stuff which is less than good (astrology! somatypes!) and the book fails to call out these typologies as less-than-credible.

the book is also very short. - none the less, the first part is excellent
