Cultural and gender considerations have also been talked about in the concluding chapters. The author suggested young counselors observe and listen to the demonstrations of skilled counselors and helpers and keep them updated by reading the latest books and relevant journals. Its thorough, step-by-step guidance to the subject and presentation of the working of each stage of the helping process make it unique among books available on similar issues.
Critically reviewing the book resulted in many positive and negative observations. The book looks attractive with a very soothing color combination of its cover page. The language used in the book is not at all technical and the message is conveyed in a very simple and precise manner that is appropriate for both professionals and non-professionals.
The direct conversational tone in writing makes the readers feel that the author is talking directly to them which may increase the concentration span of the reader. Each chapter starts with a basic paragraph about the topic, and then the main theme is discussed along with precise and appropriate examples provided into separate boxes which make it more attractive.
All the chapters are concluded with very useful activities which make sure that the reader acquires the required skills and practice it in the simulated or real-life setting.

Overall the book serves what it is supposed to serve. Like any other publication, this book is also not free from shortcomings or limitations. The content of the book is not comprehensive with less elaboration on the skills which is good for non-professionals who want to go through the book at a shallow level, but for academicians and professionals, it does not provide sufficient exposure of the world of counselors. A little more elaboration on each skill could make this book more effective.
To make it simple and precise, the author had compromised with the quality and quantity of the content.
