"A tremendously enjoyable, stimulating and challenging read"

"I found this powerful and challenging. The book is not one to be left on the shelf, but should encourage vigorous debate if we are to define and articulate our role, thereby remaining at the forefront of influencing changes in patient care. I would highly recommend it"Mental Health Nursing
