Research in Drama Education
It is perhaps the candour with which Landy offers us the autobiographical thread that awakens the reader's empathy in sharing a richly creative career and the personal pains of travel. The essays constitute a moving account of how he kept on course and confirm his established stature in the role of helmsman for his clients, his students and himself.

...a joy to read... very accessible to students and seasoned drama therapists alike. He writes with a "fighting edge" which makes this book one of the most exciting and stimulating that I have read. Any drama therapist or Creative arts therapist who seriously considers that training, methodology, personal experience and development of the profession goes hand in hand, would do well to immerse themselves in Landy's illuminating collection of essays.

...a fascinating and often intimate account. Landy is honest and direct, continually posing questions, and not afraid to expose his own mistakes. He is thus a very good teacher.
