Chapters 3-11 are the most valuable parts of the book. These chapters are pragmatic (if compact) overviews of particular techniques useful to anyone who works with clients seeking change. I didn't give 5 stars only because there are some elements I find perhaps a bit dated or maybe the word is idealistic--a section on the effectiveness of hypnotism. It was a bit too out there and could have been left out.

I loved this book as it in a very basic way tell about the strategic psychotherapy. It contains a lot of basics and have a lot of useful info that you can use directly if you assist people in their personal development. It includes a lot of practical examples.

An excellent introduction and guide to Brief Therapy. It was a good and relatively easy read covering much of the brief therapy process including identifying problems, keeping the client as the primary driver for therapy, using analogies and parables, and, of course, the Miracle Question.
