This post is two chapters of an unpublished manuscript by George Pransky. In the first Chapter George tells his story of his professional life before he learned about the principles and after he met Sydney Banks. In the second chapter he describes the impact this had on the direction of his professional life and his counseling practice. We thought that these particular chapters would provide an interesting context and historical significance to Pransky and Associates and the principles. As this was written as chapters of a book and not a blog it is a bit lengthy so it is provided here as a PDF.
