Nothing outstanding in terms of writing but the general idea of deliberate practice (DP) being applied to psychotherapy as presented by the author is very valuable in my opinion. I think most therapists would benefit from reading the book and the author's ideas, suggestions and critiques. However, don't expect a definitive guide to DP. Rather, the book gives a good rationale for the practice of DP (and thus, motivation for it!), general characteristics of DP and guidelines to get you started on ...more

3.5 stars - I had to read this for class this weekend and I thought it made some good pointers and conveyed an interesting concept/idea for my future career as a psychologist.

I definitely found it very readable as oppose ...more

Appearances can be deceiving. Opening the Routledge-published Guide to Improving Clinical Effectiveness, I expected a dry manual – only for the text to unfold into a drama.

I liked the suggestions offered in this book. The therapist raises some very relevant points, however, the further into the book I got the more discouraged I became by how difficult and time consuming it may be putting the "deliberate" into practice. Well worth a discussion between therapists, colleagues, and supervisors in the psychotherapy field.

Fantastic, sometimes i would get annoyed at the repeated phrases throughout the book, but repetition in understanding an idea can be helpful i suppose. Deliberate practice can also be applied into up and coming fields that are consider by many more art then science.
