Book recommendation: 'The Good Psychologist' by Noam Shpancer

I've just read The Good Psychologist by Noam Shpancer and thoroughly enjoyed it. It follows the life of a man who is a therapist by day and a psychology lecturer in the evening. A man who teaches his students to treat their patients with humility and to listen to their own inner voices and the life unseen. It's a wonderful read which is a funny, intelligent and fascinating insight into the life of a psychologist. But it is much more than that and is written is such a way that it's like a gentle sea breeze carrying the voices of your own heart back with it. As an aside, I also liked the fact that the therapist at one point used the idea of harnessing the power of huge waves through surfing as a metaphor for over-coming one's fears more generally. I highly recommend the book and it is available at www.amazon.co.uk.
