I very much enjoyed reading this book; it containsexcellent chapters, and demonstrates the advances that have beenmade in recent years in the understanding and treatment ofoffenders. There is no doubt that this book will be of immenseinterest and use to practitioners. The book is very informative ofwhat is currently available for treating offenders and includesuser friendly forms, worksheets, and examples of case histories,which will aid the practitioner. The book offers hope topractitioners who have to deal with challenging offenders, most ofwhom lack motivation to change. In short, I found reading this bookfascinating and inspirational.
