I was totally hooked by this book and flew through it in 3 days. I’ve highlighted so many great nuggets of wisdom throughout the book and I know I’ll return to them throughout the DClinPsy application process. It was so refreshing to read such honest stories of resilience, perseverance, and diverse paths to the clinical doctorate. This book is also full of great examples of reflective writing (something many of us haven’t been explicitly taught, but need to develop for completing our “form”). Thanks to Marianne, her team, and all who contributed to this wonderful book.
