As a relative novice to the world of brief therapies, I was heartened to read this book which blew away many of my existing assumptions. I have pracitced psychotherapy for ten years and discovered that Selikmans approach questions many of the commonly held beliefs about families that therapists hold. His advice on "impossible cases" and "multi-therapist" families is simple but enlightening.
The text is enaging and well written reinforcing the authors reputation as an engaging and entertaining speaker.
This is well worth buying.
