A very interesting and informative book. I read this book to see how power in social work affects both the social worker and the service user. I liked the way that the book shows how to use power to help the service user to be empowered and the way it points out the way the the improper use of power does harm the service user. This book is especially suitable for social workers in training and social work educators but it also has value for practitioners in the field.

Brilliant as a foundation to additional sources. Would highly recommend if the subject is hard to get your head around.
