"A rich tapestry of ideas linking the novelist and the psychotherapist." -- Carl Rogers. "A splendid gift for anyone who enjoys the art and craft of psychotherapy and the art and craft of good fiction. Erving Polster interweaves vignettes from his patient's lives with vignettes from outstanding fiction, past and current, to illuminate his loving belief that every person is uniquely interesting and important." -- Mary Goulding, Ph.D.
