Integrating Spirit and Psyche explodes with ideas and information from all over the world and across the ages, but the benefits of this richness are mitigated by too brief an examination of each topic and too rapid a shift from one topic to the next, allowing for only a relatively thin exploration. Likewise, the questions at the end of the chapters are generally broad and do not build on one another but rather switch focus from positive to negative and from personal to intellectual, which can make these questions discouraging or intimidating to answer. Although the book draws on the ideas of narrative therapy in describing and starting to deconstruct sexist narratives and bringing to light stories based on the value of women's inherent worth, it only just begins to put into practice the complex clinical skills and perspectives characteristic of narrative psychotherapy. Therefore, it is not a useful guide for understanding narrative therapy of women per se. Rather, it is most useful as a fast-paced feminist introduction to a broad range of narratives, including spiritual stories, that influence women's understandings of themselves and their lives.
