Stewart, Ian : The Berne Institute, Nottingham
"In this relatively short book, Ian Stewart has done an outstanding job of summarizing Eric Berne's life, his philosophy, and his significant contributions to the fields of personality theory and psychotherapy. . . .Stewart has made a significant and unique contribution to the literature of transactional analysis. This book deserves to be read by all transactional analysts, and especially by those who have a serious interest in their theoretical roots."
--Transactional Analysis Journal
"These books have a clear and straightforward format consisting of a life history, theoretical and practical contributions, criticisms and rebuttals and overall influences, thereby giving a good overview. Perhaps one of the most valuable and interesting aspects of this series is that it clarifies the work of these legendary figures, and sets the record straight on many aspects that have become clouded in myth. This is an exciting new series, both concise and accessible which succeeds in conveying the essence of these important innovators."
"These books would be useful for anyone interested in checking their understanding (and possible misunderstanding) about T.A. and P.C.A. and who wants an overview of 'the state of the art' in the early 1990's. . . .These are important studies for practicing counsellors and psychotherapists and for scholars and others interested in the field of counselling. They also offer rewarding reading about two powerful men and complex human beings."
