Anyone practicing therapy of any kind needs to read this book and laugh along with Dr. Haley as he takes us on a tour of why we need schizophrenics so badly to train therapists. Haley uses Jesus as the master of leadership and suggests that every modern leader has followed His lead.

This work was recommended to me by a therapist who thought I might enjoy it.

My first impression was of wonder and question, followed by WONDER and QUESTION. The author masterfully takes the reader on a journey through the evolution of mental health care while leaving those of us (the un-initiated) able to trail along with life lessons the illuminate both the pitfalls and the triumphs of everyday life. The insights into institutional life are both illuminative and tragic, and undoubtedly true, even if self defeating.

This is a work to be shared via 'word of mouth'. Not for everyone, but definitely for those seeking insight into self, and the 'why do we do this?'

I bought this on the recommendation of a psychologist. It is interesting if one is interested in a well-working political strategy. I bought this in response to a therapist, with whom I intended to work on Holocaust issues. After I bought it, I didn't see how it was relevant to my quest. When I asked the therapist why she had recommended it, she didn't have a clue. The book itself wa sin good condition and the seller was responsive.

Haley's collection of Essays is difficult to evaluate because the material is so varied. Let's go right to the meat - his essay on the "Power Tactics of Jesus Christ" for which the entire book is named (though it is a mere 36 of 160 pages). This is a provocative and insightful essay which should be read by any student of Jesus, regardless of their degree of scholarship. It clearly rates a "5" and makes one wish that Haley had spent more time expanding this essay than adding the others.

Readers of this essay will make the mistake that Haley is offering a "psychological" or "psychoanalytic" interpretation of Jesus' behavior. Nothing could be further from the truth. Haley's essay focuses on what he calls "power tactics" and his treatise is about Jesus "as an organizer and a leader of men." He then proceeds to describe how Jesus attained prominence and "power" (which Haley defines as the ability to influence your destiny), and he offers paralells to other mass movements (e.g., Lenin, Hitler, Martin Luther King). Haley's point of view is unique, and he provides many illustrations which speak to the validity of his approach.

There are two weaknesses in Haley's work. First, he takes the Gospels as if they were historical biographies, and many of his illustrations are based on passages that almost every scholar recognizes to be later additions (e.g., Matthew 10:16 - "Behold, I send you forth as sheep..."; Matthew 16:17 "...thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church..."). Because these passages do not reflect the historical Jesus, Haley's illustrations and conclusions tell us more about the Gospel writers than they do about Jesus. Second, Haley's work is merely descriptive, with no attempt to develop a theoretical structure with which to view the behaviors he identifies. A more valuable essay would have offered the behaviors and then related them to personality dynamics (e.g., Jesus acted in this manner due to his early childhood experiences having been born a mamzer in a strict Essene environment...).

Having said this, the essay demands to be read.

What about the rest of the book? Forget it! Haley ranges from boring to absurd. His claim that psychiatric patients are systematically beaten makes one wonder if he is merely being cute or whether he really believes this, in which case we have to wonder why Haley's name was not more prominent in the reform movement.

Read the Jesus essay. Ignore the rest. Send Haley a letter or an e-mail and ask him to expand on this essay.

A collection of essays by this allegedly famous figure in modern psychotherapy. He is a funny guy, if nothing else. Unlike other reviewers below, I found the title essay to be a banal, though those who have not thought about the psychology of savior types may find it shocking or insightful. My favorite essay was one detailing the family dynamics of the schizophrenic; "the art of being a schizophrenic." Apparently, he (and others) saw this disease as arising more or less from the failings of the parents; they inevitably sent mixed emotional messages to the child. While he admired the schizos creative lunacy, apparently the parents of such critter followed the same boring pattern, time after time. I found it such a hilarious and insightful essay, I really wish I owned a copy (I read it at a psychotherapist friend's house). There was also a good essay on "tha art of being a failure as a psychotherapist." The failings he pointed out dovetail well with my own criticisms of this profession; he said it better than I could, and more authoritatively.
