A must read for narrative therapy fans. Enjoyable, stimulating and refreshing. Though White can occasionally be a bit confusing, it's always worth perservering, as his basic humanity and revolutionary take on "mental illness" is a much needed antidote to potentially oppressive mainstream mental health approaches, which pathologise the individual, making a disease of perfectly understandable responses to stress, trauma and a pathogenic culture. i.e. the Western consumerist culture, which encourages us to constantly focus on our deficiencies and "failures". If you, as a therapist, want a book that will help you to empower your client, this is one that I would recommend.
