‘Maybe You Should Talk To Someone’ is an irresistable, honest, candid and easy-to-read memoir by Lori Gottlieb of her Californian psychotherapy practice from the perspective of clinician and simultaneously as a client.
The book shares a cross section of client stories from a terminally ill cancer victim to a women wishing to take her own life on her next birthday due to the meaninglessness of life to a self absorbed Hollywood producer. Throughout the book she weaves her own story of personal crisis and subsequent therapeutic journey with her cardigan wearing therapist Wendell.
If you have ever stalked your ex online or googled your therapist desperate to know about them then this book will show you are not alone… this is a funny, wise and hopeful read that will leave you with a fresh understanding on the intimate therapeutic encounter of client and therapist and hopefully give you a greater understanding of yourself and the human condition.
You should read this book if you are thinking about going into therapy, are in therapy, have ever been in a relationship, would like to be in a relationship, have ever loved someone, lost someone or have experienced emotion, it’s well worth it.
