Review: Groups: Process and Practice

User Review  - Jon De - Goodreads

They need to learn to shorten what they say. Constantly repeating themselves does not make them sound smarter or more intellecutal. Get to the point. Chapters are entirly to long and you can loose the point of the chapter by time your halfway through. Read full review
