Rambling Rose Sep 8, 2008
This book has very useful information and that's probably why my spiritual companioning class wants me to read it - BUT - it rambles. Get to the point! Did you have to coin your own new system for us to try and follow? I have read other books with this slant that were easier to read and more to the point. The conclusion of each chapter gets to the point. I did purchase a used book and it is not in "good" condition - the person who had it previously underlined what seems like the whole book.
a shot of good news Nov 9, 2001
I read this book when still in manuscript form several years ago. Since that time I have put into practice many of the ideas in this very timely book. I believe that a working understanding of systems theory is very important to anyone in a leadership position. Dr. Lawson provides a readable, easy to understand overview of Bowen Theory and Systems Theory. I believe Dr. Lawson is spot on in saying that knowledge without practice isn't much help. Centering Prayer offers a tried and true spiritual practice that provides benefit to the individual as well as the organization.
I have been rector of a parish in So. California for 7 years and can attest that the prinicples in this book really do work. Forget what you have learned about management techniques and read this book.
