Publisher's Summary

The late Carl Rogers, founder of the humanistic psychology movement, revolutionized psychotherapy with his concept of "client-centered therapy." His influence has spanned decades, but that influence has become so much a part of mainstream psychology that the ingenious nature of his work has almost been forgotten.
With a new introduction by Peter Kramer, this landmark book is a classic in its field and a must-listen for anyone interested in clinical psychology or personal growth.

On Becoming a Person:A Therapists view

This book is a staple of learning in the field of psychology.Client based therapy was not an idea before Carl R Rogers developed it in the 1960's.Most Psychology students will recall reading at least parts of it.In fact,my husband came in the room and knew what I was listening to.He read it in college!
The introduction was fascinating to me.Listening to how he came to some of his ideas and why they were so important was eye opening.Joe Hempel was the perfect narrator.He has a very nice voice,his inflection and feelings come through nicely.“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

...a century before his time (the duality of human psychology, where both causal/deterministic and freedom exist, being like that of physics in describing light both in terms of particle and wave... Great stuff!
