The late Carl Rogers founder of the humanistic psychology movement revolutionized psychotherapy with his concept of client centered therapy His influence has spanned decades but that influence has become so much a part. Bluntly although what was written often seemed foolish impractical and fantastical I found Roger s style of writing cohesive and difficult to stop following I know little of psychology and its various approaches and perspectives but I intuitively felt that Roger was at the time the book was written revolutionary bringing forward into the light a new way of regarding clients of psychotherapy Mind you the book did seem to drag on Repetition Repetition On further and on further still What was said often seemed to be mere common sense and yet I found my views regarding my own feelings my own fears and my own mistakes to be changing I feel that for a short after reading this book my own my way of viewing the world my perceptions of what is and was were somehow changed in such a way that to me seemed progressive and positive It was an imperfect eye opener that despite all of its flaws I would recommend to anyone
