Press Reviews

'While it is accessible to those new to this area ... the entire book might be seen as an inspirational resource for all who have an interest in biography work ... The book is for multiple reading and iterated study, as if dipping into a well and drawing lively inspiration out of Steiner's texts, facilitated by someone fully conversant with their meaning and application ... It brims with resources and depth of insight, and glows throughout with an inspiration that makes it well worth the effort of reading and leads the reader to a significant reappreciation of the value of, and possibilities within, human encounter.'-- Midge Whitelegg, New View, Summer 2007
