The Life and Work of Carl Rogers
by Howard Kirschenbaum
In this much expanded and comprehensively revised edition of On Becoming Carl Rogers (Delacorte, 1979), Howard Kirschenbaum deepens and broadens our understanding of each chapter of the eminent psychologist's life and work and his contributions to psychology, the helping professions and society.
