"Lymbery and Postle's book is a valuable contribution to the growing body of critical literature on austerity-driven personalization and a reminder of the importance of good social work. It deserves to be widely read" Iain Ferguson, Honorary Professor of Social Work and Social Policy, University of the West of Scotland. "A timely critique of adult social work services that are in crisis and under attack. Providing up-to-date knowledge, it is a must for today's students." Jonathan Parker, Bournemouth University. "Confronted by the spectre of a hollowed-out social work, Lymbery and Postle interrogate the rhetoric and promises of community care and personalisation. Their response is both insightful and authentic." Mark Hughes, Southern Cross University, Australia.
