This volume stands as a splendid introduction to the life and work of a pioneering psychotherapist. Selections ranging from 1942 to 1987 provide a personal look at his early influences and marriage, and reveal his approach to psychotherapy, individual case studies, research, and even crosscultural efforts to improve communication with professionalsin the Soviet Union. We see the beginning of "client-centered" therapy and can trace Rogers's commitment to its ideas through a lifetime.
