    It is very hard to read any sort of writing with such poor grammar and elementary spelling mistakes. In an academic work this is even more difficult to accept or forgive. Every page contained numerous errors to the extent that it was hard or impossible for me to follow the points being made. Is this poor quality writing or terrible kindle editing? I don't know, but certainly cannot recommend this work. It's interesting to note that the one 5 star review contains a misspelling of the word 'counselling' so it may be that if you can ignore the mistakes the content is worth reading....

    This essay was informative and easily understood. The references listed were helpfull and aided the comprehension of the related topics. It is obvious the author knows his subject and imparts his knowledge to the reader in an informed manner.

    I was sadly disappointed with this book. Yes, it does contain a collection of essays, but they are far from model. The author's use of grammar is poor and his style of writing is not easy to read. It is a very casual style, totally inappropriate for academic work.Some of the content is, at best, unhelpful. For example, in "Disabilities & Self-actualisation" (Kindle Locations 386-387) he defines congruence, saying, "Congruence is a quality that a counsellor will have along with empathy and unconditional positive regard, in fact it cannot exist without these two qualities". Ignoring the grammatical errors, the definition is meaningless and the statement incorrect. It's very possible to congruently express total disdain and lack of empathy. However, such expression would be far from therapeutic.The author uses an idiosyncratic referencing style and actually states (in the same essay) that some of the web pages he references no longer exist. It took me less than a minute to find an authoritative source for the article he quoted (for anyone who may be interested, the article concerned is, "An Overview of Social Role Valorization Theory" by Joe Osborne. A revised version can be read online at [...]_Osburn.pdf and the original is formally cited as Osburn, J. (1998). An Overview of Social Role Valorization Theory. SRV/VRS: The International Social Role Valorization Journal/La revue internationale de la Valorisation des roles sociaux, 3(1), 7-12).I don't know of any similar books on the market, but I can't recommend this one. If it was a paper book, I'd have returned it.
