"I enjoyed this book, and I consider it to be well worth reading. It should be read by people who practice psychotherapy not because the volume does not have flaws; it has several. The book makes many debatable assertions and has plenty of speculation. ... the book provides a long overdue, hard, critical look at the social, economic, and political implications and assumptions associated with the practice of psychotherapy." (William J. Whelton, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 61 (18), May, 2016)
