2.5 stars. I think that those who are interested in brief therapy (particularly solution-focused brief therapy) would enjoy the transcripts provided in this work, which show how de Shazer uses the miracle question and scaling questions, among other techniques. However, I found the transcripts to be extremely grating. Perhaps it's just that my personal approach tends to be more integrative, rather than focusing exclusively on behavioral manifestations. I do think there's something to be gained from this book, but it made it clear to me that de Shazer's approach is very different from my own.

I also think that this book might interest those who work within narrative therapy, or view therapy from a social constructivist lens. ( )
