Comments on the first edition:

'On reading Martin Payne's account I instantly had a sense of being understood. I found this particularly refreshing, as so much that is written in the name of narrative therapy doesn't at all fit with my understanding of its philosophical, ethical and political considerations. He has succeeded in representing his own voice in this, which really makes for engaging reading and accessibility of these ideas' - Michael White

'There is much here which feels of immediate relevance to the stories our patients tell us every day ... this is a wonderfully supportive and stimulating book' - Family Practice

'As a practitioner I found this book a good review of the area and most usefully, of the theory which underpins it' - Australian and New Zealand Journal of Family Therapy

Martin Payne is an independent therapist and trainer in Norwich, UK.
