Format: Paperback
This is the third book by Irvin Yalom I have read, and they're all fun.

The same ideas pop up from time to time, but the characters that come into Yalom's life are always fascinating, and they change in very unexpected ways. There are lots of laughs in this book - it also goes into fantasy mode towards the end.

I like Yalom's literary references, his emphasis on being in the 'here and now' and his passionate honesty.

I work as a speechwriter and I see his books being about 'communication' in its many forms. They also inspire you to go out and live more, as Nietzsche said, "Become he who you are".

Irvin Yalom has written a number of really insightful books about therapy and its practice. I'd expected to like this as much as LOVE'S EXECUTIONER but was disappointed as it often seemed like a tired recital of cases where the clients read like cardboard characters rather than real people.

I have now read three books by Irvin Yalom and have found them all to be entertaing, inspirational and motivating - this being no exception. I recommend reading this book if you have an interest in this field.

Irvin Yalom with typical humility shares thoughts and learnings from his psychotherapeutic practice.His books are a wonderful aid to learning both about life and as a model for a psychotherapist.

I love Yalom's writings, thus I am biased.
I just love his gentle tone and his warm stories. Despair, struggle, redemption, life. Big heart, big mind!
