    Inspiring and insightful

    I ran across this book quite by accident after having completed my masters' degree. That was twenty years and a PhD ago, and I still find Semrad's insights as thought-provoking in inspiring as the day I purchased the book. It is definitely for someone with advanced clinical training.
