A thoughtful and moving account of a therapists odyssey., 30 Nov. 1999
A psychoanalyst in his twilight years is compelled to find out how some of his favourite (and probably weirdest) patients have fared since they left therapy. Not surprisingly he discovers as much about himself as the patients. This moving thoughtful and often funny series of tales in the vein of Irvind D.Yaloms "Love's Executioner" shows how life is stranger than fiction. Akeret's consideration of the pitfalls and perils of therapy as well as the successes brings balance to the journey and gives the book an appeal to those who've never ventured near the dreaded couch.
