Ryan Holiday (Founder/Brass Check)The title essay in this book is peerless and amazing. The rest of the essays, which talk about Haley’s unusual approach to psychotherapy are also quite good. If you’ve gone to therapy, are thinking about going to therapy, or know someone going to therapy, this book is a must-read.
In this classic volume available now once again, Jay Haley in the controversial title article, proposes an original interpretation of the Bible analysing Jesus actions as a man trying to build a mass movement to topple a power structure. Using wit and wry humor, Haley in the other essays discusses such topics as: what it takes to be schizophrenic; the art and technique required to have an awful marriage; and how to be an awful therapist. His rationale for a directive therapy is the subject of other essays.
