From childhood failure and humiliation, to recovery, transactional analysis, and a career in casework and counselling as a probation officer, David Midgley has had a richly varied life.

After his early retirement from probation service, the author describes how he established a successful private practice. Conflict developed between his humanist professional stance and the growing awareness that there is more to the remarkable pattern of his life than mere chance, resulting in professional burnout. His life has taken him into military intelligence, prison work, television and radio, preaching and lecturing, counselling and psychotherapy, and—after motor neuron disease had robbed him of mobility and the ability to speak coherently—writing.
