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.”

when Rogers talks about human beings and why they are intrinsically positive and social beings, it's eaay to consider him naive but when he describes why he thinks that, you'll change your mind. He's rooting for life, for becoming more mature, more actualized, for becoming who you are which is in fact a core idea in existential philosophy.
There are many things lacking in his views specially when he talks about global conflicts but nevertheless reading him in his own words has been quite different than how Psychology textbooks described him. I keep thinking to myself maybe he is right, maybe all anyone needs is just unconditional regards, acceptance and adequate warms. I've tried his method on myself to be more open, to let go of rigidity, looking for validations outside of myself and it's been fantastic.
