“This 700-page biography of Carl Rogers is the most comprehensive work thus far on the founder of the person-centered approach to counseling. Thoroughly referenced and annotated, the book follows Rogers’ life from his early childhood through his death and offers some interesting insights into his legacy. This is clearly the definitive book on Carl Rogers, and Howard Kirschenbaum should be thanked for offering us a window into the soul of Carl Rogers.”
