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)

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

Wonderful book!

Did not want it to end! Amazing insight into the life of a therapist and how she handles problems in her own life while keeping her patients a priority. I would love to find a therapist like you in my own life. Thank you Lori for your fantastic book!

Didn’t want it to terminate;)

An insightful and open-hearted account of what goes on behind the scenes in therapy. A look at the secret world of the other half of the therapy relationship.

Get this book.

A fantastic book. Life changing. Exactly what anyone in any situation needs to understand their own life better and why they might need some help figuring out all out.

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.

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.

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.

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.

i absolutely loved this book!!!

I absolutely loved this book! At one point I had to pause the book and look to see who narrated because it sounded like only the person who wrote This Book could have been speaking it to me. It was just so well now rated and so well written I'm so sad that it's over. I need to listen to it again!!!

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."

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!

Overall Enjoyed

I enjoyed this book. Things wrapped up a little too nicely for me for everyone and the author and her clientele seem sort of elitist in general but it does show that we all have pain and suffering and we could all benefit from therapy which I honestly believe is true. And if you have never done therapy it does really explain the process (from waiting room to session to exiting) very clearly which I thought was very beneficial.
