Moving submitted by chowcy on June 23, 2019, 12:53pm I grabbed this off the Express Shelf on a whim and was not disappointed. In this book, a therapist recounts the stories of her patients, as well as her experience getting therapy. But this book is so much more than that: Lori examines many of life's questions with a compassionate and thoughtful pen. This was a powerful reminder that we are not alone in our humanity.

initially absorbing, but ultimately alienating submitted by lisa on June 28, 2019, 2:32pm As this book goes on I become less trusting of its narrator. It's not that she is revealing stuff about therapy and therapists' being human. It's that the reader senses, more and more, her conventional hierarchy of admirability, whether it's in her culturally typical values for women (and our bodies) or clear thing for the famous. Throw in the snarkiness with which she talks about some behavior, and, if you're letting this stuff register, how can you get to the end without being so turned off by her attitudes that it ruins the fun of this look into therapy from a therapist's perspective?

This reader could not.

Everyone is human submitted by srdaly on June 13, 2020, 7:57am A great reminder that everyone is human, even those who appear professional only in our interactions with them.
