Dr. Naranjo's new volume on the inner principles of Gestalt therapy practice is actually two books in one: a book written over 20 years ago at Fritz Perls' request but never before published except in excerpts, now updated by the author; and a collection of recent talks and essays that present the author's reassessment of Gestalt therapy for the 90's. Lively and readable, both learned and insightful, this book will be indispensible both for professionals and the beginning lay reader. According to colleagues of Dr. Naranjo and several therapists trained personally by Perls at Esalen Institute, his book fills a gap in the literature. A student and associate of Perls at Esalen in the 60's, Naranjo has captured the flavor and distinctive character of the California-based school of Gestalt therapy propagated by Perls in his last years as a teacher and exemplar of the approach he pioneered. This book will remind the initiate, and demonstrate to the novice, why Fritz Perls was a key influence and truly the father of the now-flourishing human potential movement world-wide.
