Although small in size, this interesting book on reflective thinking in social work incorporates considerable detail on available frameworks for reflective practice, as well as author and student voice. Mekada Julia Graham outlines that her aim is to offer different perspectives and connections on social work, reflection, narrative, personal story and critical practice. She achieves this objective primarily through her own narrative and by including detailed stories from eight social work students. The inclusion of the student perspectives is both original and valuable.The book comprises 12 chapters and is divided into two parts. In Part 1, which includes three chapters, the author explains her interest in reflective practice and how her understanding and practice of reflection has evolved throughout her personal and professional life. Drawing on a previously published reflective piece, early in Chapter 1, she reveals herself to the reader. This helpfully sets a context, not only for the remainder of the book, but also for understanding the author and her journey into social work. In the first part of the book, she also explains the historical development of reflective practice and offers a critical discussion of models of reflection.In Chapter 2, Graham considers the influence of postmodernism
