As a student of counseling, I have read many books that stray deep into theories of human growth. I have noticed that while fields such as “self-help” are flourishing, there are few books that pull back the curtain on such a vital resource as psychotherapy. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb is that book. It is a page-turning story of the author’s exploration of her clients, her own therapist, and herself. As the subtitle A Therapist, HER Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed suggests, the exploration goes well beyond therapy to illuminate the human condition. In the same way that Quiet by Susan Cain introduced the world to introversion, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone introduces the world to the inner workings of therapy with a great story along the way.
Lori Gottlieb will be at BookBar for a reading and signing on June 27th at 7:00 PM.
