Booze, news and views from a drunken opinionated fool who can't spell very well, may well repeat himself, and can't blame it on dislexia

barry stevens - don't push the river
This is a book l read as l was interested in Gestalt therapy, as it certainly did wonders for the likes of Van Morrison, who recorded Veedon Fleece after reading the book (including the song 'You Don't Pull No Punches, But You Don't Push The River') There were some interesting statements and observations, especially about how the (described in the book as) Indians (USA) look at (and approach things) in a different way to westerners. Sadly though, l found most of it to be a load of old hippy tosh and it was hard going to finish it. I certainly won't be in a rush to read any more of Barry Steven's books again, although maybe Gestalt is good, her telling of it is not. Bloody hippies.
