    I ordered mine on Amazon. It seemed like one I would want to keep.

    Do you think everyone will get it by the start of June?

    I borrowed this before but only read part of it. It's not bad but I was too busy to read it. There were a few interesting points, but there's a lot to go through. Maybe I should pick it up again?

    Sure.

    It is the book that best explains the ideas behind the current state of American psychotherapy (and possibly the west in general).

    The ideas of self-psychology (self-esteem, self-actualization, self-<>) are espoused in this book. Maslow and other humanist/existentialist psychologists are who Rogers identified with.

    Whether or not you agree with him, the influence of Rogers on the U.S. in particular is clear.

    I've found being a community borrower at the local University gives me access to a lot more books than I would have had otherwise.

    Perhaps there is a University near by?

    hmm.... no big U but there's local community colleges that are popular, that might be an idea.

    (We have little branch libraries but the selection is a little sporadic.)

    Our city library system is connected to many other community and college libraries. Maybe yours is, too. Our borrowing system is called Link+.
