`Brian Thorne has arguably become the UK's leading authority on Carl Rogers and his work, gaining this reputation by producing books which ooze many of the qualaties that Rogers himslef espoused - frankness, clarity, sensivity, insightfullness, thoroughness, humility and genorosity of spirit. This book will not disappoint the reader on any of these fronts.

Providing unique insights into his life and a clear explanation of his major theoretical ideas, this book offers an accessible introduction for all practitioners and students of the person-centred approach.
