Kindle, Peter A. (2014). Review of the book "Beginnings, Middles, & Ends, by O. W. Rogers. The Advanced Generalist: Social Work Research Journal, 1 (2), p 84-86.


The book "Beginnings, Middles, & Ends" by Ogden W. Rogers provides a 100 story reflective understanding of social work. The book is divided into the three major sections; the powerful and mysterious beginnings; the hard work and confusion of the middles; and the sadness and surprise of the endings. Dr. Kindle suggests that the text must be mixed with the readers' own insights and experiences to form meaning. He recommends this book without reservation while claiming it is an exceptional model of reflective social work practice which will leave the reader committed to deeper levels of self-reflection in their practice.
