Hands-down my favorite book from grad school and for learning how to be a therapist. I'm pretty sure I read the whole thing cover to cover, and am using it now in the training of a psychiatry resident. It's so accessible in explaining the theory and the process/precedures/how-to for interpersonal therapy. In short, I LOVE IT.
One of the best, most influential books I read in my graduate training and still a book I refer back to often in my professional work. Have loaned the book to numerous supervisees and they almost always have a very positive reaction to it.

I'm in the middle, but so far this is an excellent introduction to the Interpersonal approach to therapy. Unlike many books that merely say "establish a therapeutic alliance," this book focuses on practical recommendations on how to enhance and leverage the relationship to foster client change.
