How many assignments have you tackled that ask you to critically review or evaluate practice? In my experience every single one. This book is the answer. It comprehensively covers all areas of Social Work Practice and invites the reader to grow professionally and personally as it offers an insight into the reflective skills needed to be an effective, transformingly critical practioner.
The book is helpfully structured into sections with easy to dip into chapters which is invaluable when looking for references. I especially liked the conclusions at the end of each chapter which give a clear synopsis of the contents. The list of contributors is an impressive who's who of contemporary, social work authors.
I'm glad I have added it to my bookshelf and consider it and its companion, Social Work: Themes, Issues and Critical Debates, essential reading.

The many sections and topics in this book can be very specfic, so the majority of the book may not seeem relevent to your particular field of practice.
However the book is exactly its title 'critical'. I have found it very difficult to get literature that is a good example of critical practice and promtps critical thinking. I would definitly recommend this book. It is an interestign read, and opposed to giving facts and theories, helps you develop on another level conceptually.

Adams is a great author, I bought most of his books as they are easy to read and follow. He also provides excellent content in this book.
