This book is great as it challenges and explores the forbidden taboo of ouch between professionals and clents. It shows how touch can bring healing in the right circumstances. It also shows the damaging effects of crossing that fine line, where touching damages the client. On the whole, this book provides the reader with a balanced view of how touch can aid therapy and hinder it. This is an area that needed exploring as no one has taken up the subject since Freud.
