To the Editor: This book presents the latest thinking on motivational interviewing (MI) by Steve Rollnick, Bill Miller and Chris Butler and is aimed at the wide variety of healthcare workers who engage with patients about lifestyle or behaviour change. In the South African context, with our quadruple burden of disease from HIV, chronic disorders, poverty-related conditions and trauma, it is easy to see the importance of conversations about sexual behaviour, adherence, obesity, as well as smoking, alcohol and other substance abuse.
