    Abstract

    This book presents an interesting approach to working with criminals but unfortunately loses much by severe overstatement and lack of any precise delineation of the population being described. It does give a description of the thinking patterns of many criminals and it does present a cognitive type of therapy which, however, it does not acknowledge as such. The author's treatment, as well as that of Yochelson with whom he had previously collaborated, involves direct forceful confrontation to the criminal of his thinking patterns, yet at the same time maintains polite respect for him. The book is rich in pertinent clinical material, and presents an approach that encourages the criminal to take responsibility for his actions without blaming others for his behavior. As such, it is a meaningful contribution.
