I have not read the entire book but noted glaring errors and inaccuracies in the few parts I reviewed. On page 176 and beyond the treatment known as "Moral Reconation Therapy" is discussed and attributed to a Canadian "sociologist" Ross. Ross is a psychologist but he had nothing whatsoever to do with Moral Reconation Therapy or its development. Ross was one of the people who helped do a program called R & R in Canada. Moral Reconation Therapy was fully implemented and developed in 1986 in Memphis, Tennessee by myself (Greg Little) and Ken Robinson. All Moral Reconation Therapy materials have our names on them. But the title of this reviewed book is right: The "Real Story" was certainly missed. Tabloid journalism indeed!!
