Reviews and Endorsements

'Michael Jacobs is an important, influential, erudite and humane voice within counselling and psychotherapy, urging us to consider what we do not know and to live and work with more complexity.'
- Susie Orbach, Psychoanalyst

'For more than thirty years, Michael Jacobs has occupied a seminal position in the training and education of psychotherapists and counsellors in Great Britain and beyond. In his latest book... Jacobs takes us on an engrossing intellectual journey as he revisits crucial turning points in his development as both theoretician and practitioner... he helps us to explore a number of often neglected topics, such as fame and fate, the psychology of optimism and pessimism, and the study of the therapist's relationship to the idea of revenge. A beautiful amalgamation of personal and professional vignettes and observations, this book will engage all of us who work in the psychological arena.'
- Brett Kahr, Senior Clinical Research Fellow in Psychotherapy and Mental Health at the Centre for Child Mental Health, London

'This is a worthwhile read and the use of theological and literary references gives depth and resonance to the read.'
- T.B. Broll, New Therapist
