Product description

Review

Wonderful, compelling and as insightful about its subject and about the times he lived in as you could hope for. A fabulous read (Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for Stone)

Irvin D. Yalom is the psychiatrist who thinks like a philosopher and writes like the fine novelist he also happens to be. Becoming Myself delivers not only the engrossing story of one exceptional individual's life, it shines with revelations regarding life as it ought to be lived (Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, author of Plato at the Googleplex: Why Philosophy Won't Go Away)

This is a book to read and reread for years to come, a memorable journey through Yalom's time and ours (Jay Parini, author of The Last Station and New and Collected Poems: 1975-2015)

A candid, insightful memoir by one of the world's most important and accomplished experts on the human soul (Daniel Menaker, author of The Treatment and My Mistake: A Memoir)

When Yalom publishes something - anything - I buy it, and he never disappoints. He's an amazing storyteller, a gorgeous writer, a great, generous, compassionate thinker, and - quite rightly - one of the world's most influential mental healthcare practitioners (Nicola Barker, Guardian Best Books of 2017)

Book Description

A significant and eagerly anticipated memoir from one of the world's leading therapists.
