Book reviews on the way

May 12th, 2009No Comments  

i am voraciously reading, parallel to my writing, and since i do so, i decided that doing book reviews on what i am reading on is another way of reflecting on my readings, get it published and have the benefits of getting the book for free! ( i have already done 10 book reviews on topics of my research and practice in the past years, which has proved useful to me). The ones i am working on now are on the following titles, to be publised after the summer:

1. Romanyshyn, R. D. (2005) The Wounded Researcher: Research with Soul in Mind. Louisiana: Spring Journal Books

2. Speedy, J. (2008) Narrative Inquiry and Psychotherapy. Palgrave MacMillan

3. Liotta, E. (2008) On Soul and Earth: the Psychic Value of Place. London Routledge

I intend to make a link in the blog with all the book reviews on pdf, will come later…happy reading!
