Description

Now being developed as a television series with Eva Longoria and ABC!  

"An irresistibly addictive tour of the human condition." (Kirkus, starred review)

"Rarely have I read a book that challenged me to see myself in an entirely new light, and was at the same time laugh-out-loud funny and utterly absorbing." (Katie Couric)

"This is a daring, delightful, and transformative book." (Arianna Huffington, founder, Huffington Post and founder & CEO, Thrive Global)

"Wise, warm, smart, and funny. You must read this book." (Susan Cain, New York Times best-selling author of Quiet)

From a New York Times best-selling author, psychotherapist, and national advice columnist, a hilarious, thought-provoking, and surprising new book that takes us behind the scenes of a therapist's world - where her patients are looking for answers (and so is she).  

One day, Lori Gottlieb is a therapist who helps patients in her Los Angeles practice. The next, a crisis causes her world to come crashing down. Enter Wendell, the quirky but seasoned therapist in whose of­fice she suddenly lands. With his balding head, cardigan, and khakis, he seems to have come straight from Therapist Central Casting. Yet he will turn out to be anything but.  

As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her patients' lives - a self-absorbed Hollywood producer, a young newlywed diagnosed with a terminal illness, a senior citizen threatening to end her life on her birthday if nothing gets better, and a 20-something who can't stop hooking up with the wrong guys - she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very ones she is now bringing to Wendell.  

With startling wisdom and humor, Gottlieb invites us into her world as both clinician and patient, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope between love and desire, meaning and mortality, guilt and redemption, terror and courage, hope and change.  

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is revolutionary in its candor, offering a deeply personal yet universal tour of our hearts and minds and providing the rarest of gifts: a boldly revealing portrait of what it means to be human and a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious lives and our power to transform them.

Ce que les critiques disent

"Brittany Pressley performs this audiobook at a fast pace that will be familiar to listeners who live in large, bustling cities. But she knows how to moderate her energy for the tender sections, and her overall performance sounds authentic, conversational, and true to the core intentions of the author's story....Portrayed by Pressley, [the author] also sounds like someone you know, which makes her observations and insights all the more accessible." (AudioFile Magazine)

Great story, especially for therapists.

This was a great story, told beautifully. The author weaves through several stories with ease. Really enjoyed it.

maybe I should!

Maybe this was the right book at the right time, or maybe it's simply fantastic. I found the stories fascinating and the psychology compelling. I think I'll be listening to it again!

sad that it ended!

As a new therapist I found this book to be so relatable! I would recommend it to anyone in this field, at times it feels as if you are conferencing with a colleague who is vulnerable and wise

Outstanding

A sometimes difficult, uncomfortable, listen... but so very very worth every single moment. Revealing and thought provoking. Masterfully written and beautifully expressed. It hit home for me more times than I would like to admit to.

Listening to Someone

Really enjoyed listening to this story on my way to and from work. It gave lots of food for thought, and reflective ideas while still being an entertaining story.

Compelling and heart-warming

I didn't want this book to end. It was moving, funny, and insightful. As someone who goes to therapy, it was incredibly interesting to see it from a different POV. Brittany Pressley's reading was also wonderful. Already looking forward to listening all over again (and buying the hardcopy)!

Wow wow wow!!!!!

Rarely do I give 5 star ratings in every category, but this one deserves it! As a therapist there were many moments I connected on a deeper level due to the work. For the non therapist reader, there will be life lessons to take away from each vingnette and story. Listen/read and allow it to settle, your life will be better for it!

Wonderful!

This book is so very interesting and personal! I wanted to listen to it everyday and if I didn’t have time I was so disappointed! The performance was excellent along with the story which also made me want to hear more all the time. I’ve learned a lot about myself, and my processes and relationships through the stories of her patients and of her own processes. This book offers a rare insight into what it means to be human.

I'm going to miss the narrator...

Loved it! I literally just finished listening to it and I'm considering listening to it again right now. It provides great insight into how therapy works and why anyone and everyone would benefit of seeing a therapist (the right therapist, that is). I think there is a take-away for everyone in this book.

Best Book I’ve Read This Year

This book is heartwarming, funny, insightful, and moving. If I had to pick one book I read this year that truly changed how I feel and approach my daily life, it’s this one. Lori’s ability to normalize our humanity and the idea of having a therapist is so grounding. Her emphasis on the importance of connection to others and creating meaning in our lives is both comforting and inspirational.

An amazing story that touched all five of my senses

This book was comical, yet emotional on every level. I laughed, I cried, I hugged my loved ones a little tighter. A book that was written so well it played like a movie in my head. I could taste the Chinese chicken salad Jon brought into his sessions, I could hear Julie and her boyfriend laughing and crying together, I could see Ruby’s art, and I could feel every emotion expressed throughout this amazing piece of work. Thank you so much for sharing Lori.

Great listen, great narration

I loved this. Honest, laugh out loud funny at some moments, and other moments that had be bawling. Intimate without being overwhelming. Narrator was perfectly cast. I’ve already recommended this audiobook to other friends, worth a listen. It made me think seriously about how I talk to myself and made me want to hug my therapist.

Clear your schedule and take a ride

This is an incredible journey through the art of therapy —- told by a therapist who sees a therapist — and the lessons she learns from him and her patients through the years. Expertly crafted, funny, self-deprecating and brutally honest, this is a must listen. I laughed, cried and took deep breathes as Gottlieb wove her life’s work into a book that anyone in therapy or in pain will most likely find astonishingly illuminating in their own lives. I didn’t want it to end.

Hard to finish!

While there were a few interesting and poignant stories in the book (Julie's story in particular), I found myself having a hard time finishing! The author reveals very specific details about her patients' lives, but she was pretty vague and guarded about her own. For example, she talks about a "mystery illness" that was really affecting her quality of life, but instead of exploring how that made her feel, she glosses over it, and never provides much closure to the reader. This book was a bit of a downer, and I don't think I'd recommend it.

Mixed Bag

The author had interesting insights into how therapy works and how therapy sessions play out. But the cloying feel good stories of each of her patients were not credible and seemed almost superficial. I lost patience when each of her patients had sudden shifts in perspectives and “happy” endings. Relating the joyful funeral or the busy executive’s new appreciation for his family or the older woman’s ridiculously enriched life- just seemed contrived and rather ridiculous. Why does the author feel the need to tie up convenient closure for each of these patients? I prefer a more realistic (and just as uplifting) exposure of therapy’s benefits.

A book about humanity

This book was insightful into the human condition, as the speaker showed us the compassion she had for others’ pain, as well as her own. The stories were raw and honest and so beautifully told. I thought of myself through the experiences of others and came out with a new hopeful perspective. The author clearly has such admiration for humanity and it’s complexities. I loved this book and read it all too quickly. I know you’ll enjoy it!

Much enjoyed!

I blasted through this book. I fell in love with Lori, identified heavily with her, her clients and the overall narrative throughout the book. I cried and laughed and reflected in my own experiences. If you’ve spent time in therapy or are a therapist I highly recommend.

too much focus on John

I really wanted to like this book. But Gottlieb spends too much time sharing session information about her client, John, who refers to everyone as "idiots." I was much more interested in the parts where she discusses her own therapy and her sessions with the cancer patient, but I fail to understand other readers'/listeners' enthusiasm for the "story."
