Lebow's book is truly fascinating. It focuses in an exceptionally clear way on the wide variety of therapies that are currently most significant. What intrigued me is that the book not only delineates the primary characteristics of each of these different therapies; it also makes it shockingly clear how different the effects of these therapies can be on various individuals. I started browsing through the pages of this book and found myself easily drawn in by a style that is far more accessible than is usually found in such a densely packed and knowledgeable work. Because of the comprehensive and cutting edge nature of Lebow's research, previously written books with similar aspirations would seem to be immediately outdated. I believe this book will be of enormous interest to anyone who wants to understand the most significant current therapies and how they might affect the clients who choose to participate in them.
