Read full description of the books:

An extremely methodical examination of the experimental evidence for-and-against the idea that the benefits of psychotherapies are due to their common factors rather than their specific ingredients.

This book is somewhat mathsy. I managed to read it without complete understanding of the statistical terms. I felt that I still understood the findings even if I did not grasp the technical minutiae. If you are intimidated by occasional equations or statistical terms then you might prefer the more recent and less methodical "Essential Research Findings in Counselling and Psychotherapy: The Facts Are Friendly" by Mick Cooper.

The author does a pretty good job of expressing both sides of an argument on which he has obviously come down on one side. The image I now have (as a trainee counsellor) is that the specific ingredients of genuine psychotherapies are a vector for the common factors that all competent therapists bring to their clients. In a way, this massively simplifies the selection of which therapeutic model to learn about and practice because rather than having to say, "Which model really works?" we only have to ask, "Which model really speaks to me?"
