Editorial Reviews

Rethinking Everything is a well-researched and an extremely accessible read for anyone wishing to learn more about problem solving through Transactional Analysis (TA). Neil Bright has taken major TA concepts and integrated them well with commonly accepted explanations from other schools of psychological thought.  He brings a contemporary manner of thinking about these theories and presents them in a lively way, keeping readers engaged in a process that invites reflection.
