This volume is a very welcome addition to PCCS Books' series of 'Counselling Primers'. It confines itself to the varieties of experiential therapy that live within the broad person-centred tradition ... Nick Baker has covered a wide range of ideas in a short book, and has succeeded in producing an overall perspective that should be very useful for students and others who wish to explore further this rather neglected area of person-centred therapy ... I think this is a valuable book in that it will broaden students' appreciation of the variety and complexity present in the person-centred tradition.
