A book to persuade the therapy cynics
???? UNDER THE LAMPLIGHT-
Therapists need therapy, too: Lori Gottlieb’s Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is a funny, warm and thought-provoking read that takes readers behind the scenes of her experience as both a therapist and patient. Gottlieb introduces us to a cast of characters drawn from the patients who come to her for help, all of whom — from a narcissistic Hollywood producer, to a suicidal senior citizen, to a twent-something woman struggling to navigate the dating scene — are ultimately struggling with the same core conundrums. Gottlieb also takes the reader with her into those sessions where she’s the one on the couch, introducing us to her own therapist — who has far more insight to offer than might at first be apparent. This is an intimate, accessible book that pulls back the curtain on the inner workings of human thinking and relationships, shedding light on life’s complexities and our power to overcome them.
