A TIME magazine Must-Read Book of the Year Ever wonder what your therapist is thinking? Now you can find out, as therapist and New York Times bestselling author Lori Gottlieb takes us behind the scenes of her practice where her patients are looking for answers (and so is she). When a personal crisis causes her world to come crashing down, Lori Gottlieb an experienced therapist with a thriving practice in Los Angeles is suddenly adrift. Enter Wendell, himself a veteran therapist with an unconventional style, whose sessions with Gottlieb will prove transformative for her. As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her own patients lives a self-absorbed Hollywood producer, a young newlywed diagnosed with a terminal illness, a senior citizen who feels she has nothing to live for, and a self-destructive twenty-something who cant stop hooking up with the wrong guys she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very questions she is bringing to Wendell. Taking place over one year, and beginning with the devastating event that lands her in Wendells office, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone offers a rare and candid insight into a profession that is conventionally bound with rules and secrecy. Told with charm and compassion, vulnerability and humour, its also the story of an incredible relationship between two therapists, and a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious inner lives, as well as our power to transform them.

Recensioner i media

Absorbing and fascinating. -- Oliver Burkeman * The Guardian * This is a wonderful book I wish I hadnt finished reading it, but will start from the beginning again happily. -- Nigella Lawson Gottlieb has written a wise, funny, and sometimes blisteringly sad book that is warmer than any self-help guide: one that feels like a friend. -- Anna Leszkiewicz * New Statesman * Candid and deeply personal, this is a book about being both patient and clinician, and one that offers hope to us all. -- Sarah Shaffi * Stylist Magazines Your Guide to 2019s Best Non-Fiction Books * In prose thats conversational and funny yet deeply insightful, psychologist Lori Gottlieb is here to remind us that our therapists are people, too. * Refinery29 * In her memoir, bestselling author, columnist, and therapist Lori Gottlieb explores her own issues and discovers just how similar they are to the problems of her clients. * Bustle * Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is funny, hopeful, wise, and engrossing all at the same time. Lori Gottlieb takes us inside the most intimate of encounters as both clinician and patient and leaves us with a surprisingly fresh understanding of ourselves, one another, and the human condition. This is a daring, delightful, and transformative book. -- Arianna Huffington, founder of <i>Huffington Post</i> and founder & CEO of Thrive Global Ive been reading books about psychotherapy for over a half century, but never have I encountered a book like Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: so bold and brassy, so packed with good stories, so honest, deep, and riveting. I intended to read a chapter or two but ended up reading and relishing every word. -- Irvin Yalom MD, author of <i>Loves Executioner, and other Tales of Psychotherapy</i>, and professor emeritus of psychiatry at Stanford University. If you have even an ounce of interest in the therapeutic process, or in the conundrum of being human, you must read this book. It is wise, warm, smart, and funny, and Lori Gottlieb is exceedingly good company. -- Susan Cain, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Quiet</i> Shrinks, theyre just like us at least in Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, the heartfelt memoir by therapist Lori Gottlieb. Warm, funny, and engaging (no poker-faced clinician here), Gottlieb not only gives us an unvarnished look at her patients lives, but also her own. The result is the most relatable portrait of a therapist Ive yet encountered. -- Susannah Cahalan, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Brain on Fire</i> Here are some people who might benefit from Lori Gottliebs illuminating new book: Therapists, people who have been in therapy, people who have been in relationships, people who have experienced emotions. In other words, everyone. Loris story is funny, enlightening, and radically honest. It merits far more than 50 minutes of your time. -- A.J. Jacobs, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>The Year of Living Biblically</i> Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is ingenious, inspiring, tender, and funny. Lori Gottlieb bravely takes her readers on a guided tour into the self, showing us the therapeutic process from both sides of the couch as both therapist and patient. I cheered for her breakthroughs, as if they were my own! This is the best book I've ever read about the life-changing possibilities of talk therapy. -- Amy Dickinson, Ask Amy advice columnist and <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things</i> This book is so insightful, and compassionate, and rich, and taught me a lot about myself. I was sucked right in to these vivid, funny, illuminating stories of humans trying to climb their way out of hiding, overcome self-defeating habits, and
