Louise Betts Egan
Henry Kellerman's clear prose and vast experience come together in The 4 Steps to Peace of Mind. His book reaches out to those of us not in the profession, gently helping us understand some of his patients' fears, wishes, and actions—so that ultimately we can understand our own. A valuable, fascinating book for anyone interested in the human condition.
