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".
I just love his gentle tone and his warm stories. Despair, struggle, redemption, life. Big heart, big mind!
