Editorial Reviews

"A breathtaking experience. Beck's explanations are so clear, obvious and practical that you feel a surge of hope. Prisoners of Hate is a clear review of the world's most important psychological theory, and is virtually a workbook on how to prevent violence. . . . A book that does so many important things so well can only be called a masterpiece." (Philadelphia Inquirer)
