This is an excellent book for anyone beginning or thinking of starting a career in counseling. The number one rule of counseling is that the counselor must know oneself. This book's purpose is to get the reader to reflect on oneself in a way that questions one's initial desire to counsel and how to counsel in a respectful way that does not place the counselor's values and beliefs upon the client.

Emphasizing self reflection, the authors challenge readers to examine their motives for choosing a helping career and encourage them to take a candid look at the demands and strains they'll face in the helping professions.
