Brian Thorne is unusual in having maintained throughout a long and distinguished career a passionate commitment both to the theory and practice of person-centred therapy and to membership of the Anglican Church. This dual allegiance has earned him many friends and not a few detractors in both camps. His autobiography reveals a complex personality who grew up during the years of the Second World War and was later to see active service in the British Army during the Eoka campaign in Cyprus. We read of the experiences of the butcher's assistant's son who found himself at a public school and then at Cambridge. We meet the linguist who became a schoolmaster only for his true vocation to lead him to the emerging profession of counselling and psychotherapy. We are taken back to the years prior to the founding of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and to Thorne's pioneering days at Keele University and then as the first Director of the Counselling Service at the University of East Anglia in Norwich. The final chapter provides a moving account of what it has meant for Thorne to experience - and survive - major heart surgery.
