it was amazing
Read from January 13 to 23, 2012 — I own a copy

This is an incredibly well-written book that takes you through the intimate process of therapy with one particular family, while explaining the co-therapists' intentions and interpretations at each stage. This was on the "suggested reading list" for my Theories of Family Therapy class. I'm so glad I took the suggestion to heart! This book opened my eyes to many systemic issues that are endemic to all families. I expect that it will stay with me for reference and re-reads throughout my career!
