Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 915–916. Reviews the book, The Family Crucible by Augustus Y. Napier and Carl A. Whitaker (1978). The theme of the book is progress of the family in therapy. It is very convincing and as enjoyable as a novel. The process of the book is to give the content of the work with Napier functioning watchfully, commenting to the reader on his own role and his impulses to intervene, commenting on his colleague's strategies and those of the family members. Chapters giving theory and background are spaced between the chapters giving the content of the session. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
