This splendid book should do much to embolden person-centred practitioners so that they can enter the dialogical battle ground with renewed confidence and no little pride in the tradition which they represent. The book's very existence points to a thriving professional association, a flourishing journal and a successful publishing house primarily committed to the advancement of person-centred therapy and its associated activities. This is no mean springboard for the approach at the beginning of the new millennium and we do well to remind ourselves of the strength inherent in all three accomplishments. Professor Brian Thorne, Person-Centred Practice, Vol. 8, No. 2. Autumn 2000.
