    An invaluable resource

    This is a fantastic book that engages you right from the start. I found it to be full of great ideas that will certainly help me in my mental health career. What surprised me most was just how well written the book is. At times it reads more like a novel than a non-fiction book, and I say this with the highest of compliments. I honestly had a hard time putting it down. In my opinion, this is one of those rare books that will inspire, educate, and leave you wanting more.
