My daughter had requested this book for Christmas.
My local book store did a computer search, and told me that they would be unable to order the book for me. I wasn't optimistic, therefore, when I searched for it on Amazon, but was thrilled how easy it was to purchase, and that it arrived in good time for Christmas.

An excellent overview of Yalom's prior work 5 Nov. 2003
By Reviewer Dr. Beth (Ph.D.) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a psychologist working in a college counseling center, I found this book to be a useful review of Yalom's prior publications. The first part of the book draws from Yalom's definitive text on group therapy, THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF GROUP PSYCHOTHERAPY. In this section, he addresses some of the most salient therapeutic factors to group treatment as well provides vital guidelines for therapists serving as group facilitators. He also describes group therapy with several different types of specialized groups: hospitalized patients, patients addicted to alcohol, the terminally ill, and the bereaved (although this last group was aimed at widows/widowers, I have been able to adapt some of the concepts to my work wtih college students). Part two centers on existential therapy, as Yalom provides excerpts from his previous text by that same name. He spends time examining each of the four ultimate concerns--death, freedom, isolation, and meaninglessness--and he focuses particularly on death and anxiety in psychotherapy. In the final section of the book, Yalom espouses on psychology and writing, and he reviews his journey from therapist to fiction writer. Yalom is a thoughtful and engaging writer who provides intelligent insights into some of the most critical areas of psychotherapy in this enjoyable and important book.

Humanistic - Existential Psychotherapy 5 Jan. 2004
By James P. Gibb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An Excellent synthesis of Yalom's former publications. Yalom is very easy to read, yet informative. He does not write in the troublesome professional jargon of other psychiatrists. Anyone going into the field of psychotherapy, counseling, social work, etc. should read this book. A great book is one that is informative yet enjoyable at the same time. This work leaves a desire to read all of Yalom's books. I just purchased Existential Psychotherapy and I have already read When Nietzsche Wept and Love's Executioner. From a student in Philosophy looking to go into clinical psychology.

An interesting page turner... 11 Nov. 2006
By Kristen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read several of Yalom's books, and each of them have been wonderfully written and engaging. This book was a great overview of his previous books, and it makes me want to purchase all of his books. He is a great writer, understandable, and inspiring. A must read for anyone in the counseling field!

The Yalom REader 11 Oct. 2009
By Constanza Morales - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are in the field of psychology or social work this book is a must read. In the first chapter of the book, Yalom talksabout the book, The Theory and Pratice of Group Psychotherapy.Beginning with the therapeutic facotrs of how group therapy helps clients. My favorite story is "lying on the couch" because the story is based on an a psychiatrist who goes against the ethical standards in the field to help a client who is dealing with transference. There is a lot to be learned from the story.
I hope this review was helpful.

Yalom Never Fails to Blow You Away 1 Jan. 2010
By Jim Altfeld - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It really doesn't matter which Yalom book you read, they will never disappoint. He is a true Master in so many ways. He inspired me to write a blog on Becoming Who You Are [...] in case you're interested.
