    Default So who has gotten the book?

    So who has gotten the book?

    I got mine.

    I was thinking we could do parts 1-3 on week 1, parts 4-5 on week two, parts 6-7 on week 3, and reserve the last week for general discussion?

    How does that sound?

    Default How's the reading?

    I thought I would check to see how many people are still involved?

    Is the pace too slow, too fast?

    What are your thoughts on Rogers, his "process" or the central hypothesis that informs his process?

    What stage would you consider yourself in terms of "becoming a person?"

    How deeply do you think his work affected the U.S. culture?

    Should we post our own notes on what we read so far?

    Default How about we make this the June/July book?

    I personally only got through Chapter 8, so far.

    Are there other members who have gotten this book?

    I was starting to feel like I was reading by myself, and kinda lost some motivation.

    It is interesting material, however I find that the book is VERY repetitive. He adds a few details, or a different facet, every time he re-introduces his process and "being a process," "being complexity," etc.

    It is clear to me that Rogers optimizes the modern American psychotherapy view point. To feel ones feelings, be comfortable expressing them, and to not have "oughts" (or "shoulds" as my counselor used to say).

    Incidentally, I would type Rogers as an INFP. Seems very much like an FP of some sort (though perhaps it is because of the viewpoint he is expressing seems to optimize Fi). He has an abstract style of writing (though that could be because he is describing research). The description of his childhood indicated to me an IP of sorts (thought that may be small "scientific" farm life).

    Anyway, the main question I am asking is:
    Anyone else reading this book?

    If so, let's make it July as well. I had a bit too much going on in June.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I'd love to join in but only found the thread today and wont be back home for another few weeks so I might wait and join in in July/August.
    But I'm interested! Always wanted to be in an interesting book club :-)

    Well we can make it "summer" instead.

    This was not meant to be a stressful thing. So I don't want to rush anyone who have trouble obtaining the book, or finding time to read, etc.

    Just interested parties who have all read the same book.
