Clear, concise, sensible, realistic. This type of therapy addresses exactly what is missing from more traditional models. Based on attachment theory, this approach eloquently speaks to the most basic of human drives. The beauty of this is that, as long as one knows how to read attachment behaviors in different cultures, this type of therapy transcends culture. This is one of the most useful and thrilling books I have read.
