On Becoming A Person: A Therapist's View of Psychotherapy, Carl R. Rogers
6 Carl R. Rogers On Becoming A Person: A Therapist's View of Psychotherapy
Houghton Mifflin Company 246311 USA 1995 039575531x / 9780395755310 Softcover Near Fine Condition 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. A new introduction by Peter Kramer sheds light on the significance of Dr. Rogers's work today. New discoveries in the field of psychopharmacology, especially that of the antidepressant Prozac, have spawned a quick-fix drug revolution that has obscured the psychotherapeutic relationship. As the pendulum slowly swings back toward an appreciation of the therapeutic encounter, Dr. Rogers's "client-centered therapy" becomes particularly timely and important. 420 pages.

The Rosie Effect, Graeme Simsion
16 Graeme Simsion The Rosie Effect
Text Publishing Company 245924 Australia 2014 1922182109 / 9781922182104 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition Shortlisted, Indie Book Award for Fiction, 2015 Shortlisted, Booksellers Choice Award, 2015 'We've got something to celebrate,' Rosie said. I am not fond of surprises, especially if they disrupt plans already in place. I assumed that she had achieved some important milestone with her thesis. Or perhaps she had been offered a place in the psychiatry-training programme. This would be extremely good news, and I estimated the probability of sex at greater than 80%. 'We're pregnant,' she said. The Rosie Project was an international publishing phenomenon, with more than a million copies sold in over forty countries around the world. Now Graeme Simsion returns with the highly anticipated sequel, The Rosie Effect. Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are now married and living in New York. Don has been teaching while Rosie completes her second year at Columbia Medical School. Just as Don is about to announce that Gene, his philandering best friend from Australia, is coming to stay, Rosie drops a bombshell- she's pregnant. In true Tillman style, Don instantly becomes an expert on all things obstetric. But in between immersing himself in a new research study on parenting and implementing the Standardised Meal System (pregnancy version), Don's old weaknesses resurface. And while he strives to get the technicalities right, he gets the emotions all wrong, and risks losing Rosie when she needs him most. The Rosie Effect is the charming and hilarious romantic comedy of the year 415 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Fiction; Fiction; ISBN/EAN: 9781922182104.

The Rosie Project, Graeme Simsion
17 Graeme Simsion The Rosie Project
Penguin Books 245829 Great Britain 2014 1405912790 / 9781405912792 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is a story about love, life and lobster every Tuesday...'Marvellous'. (John Boyne). 'Original, clever and perfectly written'. (Jill Mansell). 'Adorable'. (Marian Keyes). 'An upbeat, quirky, impertinent gem of a read'. (Chris Cleave). 'I'm not good at understanding what other people want.' 'Tell me something I don't know ...' Love isn't an exact science - but no one told Don Tillman. A thirty-nine-year-old geneticist, Don's never had a second date. So he devises the Wife Project, a scientific test to find the perfect partner. Enter Rosie - 'the world's most incompatible woman' - throwing Don's safe, ordered life into chaos. But what is this unsettling, alien emotion he's feeling? 'Don Tillman is one of the most endearing, charming and fascinating literary characters I have met in a long time'. (The Times). 'Hilarious, unlikely and heartbreaking'. (Easy Living). 'Touching and laugh-out-loud funny - think The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time meets Silver Linings Playbook'. (Stylist). 'Funny, endearing, and pure, wonderful escapism'. (Independent). 'A sweet, funny rom-com...You'll be willing Don and Rosie on every step of the way'. (Marie Claire). 'Original, charming and very funny'. (Woman & Home). 'A comic triumph: clever, humane and tears-in-your-eyes funny. But best of all, The Rosie Project is a madly romantic love story'. (Liz Jensen, author of The Rapture). 'I couldn't put this book down. It's one of the most quirky and endearing romances I've ever read. I laughed the whole way through. And now I want to meet Don'. (Sophie Kinsella). With the charm of Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and the romance of David Nicholls' One Day, The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is both funny and endearing - and is set to become the paperback of 2014. Graeme Simsion is a full-time writer. Previously an IT consultant and educator, he wrote his first book in 1994 (the standard reference on data modelling, now entering its fourth edition), and is married to Anne, a professor of psychiatry who writes erotic fiction. They have two children. 329 pages. Previous owners name on front endpaper. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Fiction; Fiction; ISBN/EAN: 9781405912792.
