Verified Purchase. Who you ask that help from is entirely up to you. There were many enlightening moments in the book for me. We're different people but all human, different OS on similar hardware. At times, the questions and feelings expressed by each patient and Lori had me subconsciously acknowledging that emotion too or it had me asking the same questions to myself. Some times it would also feel as if the author was calling me out on some of my toxic behaviors too.
By The Urban Reader on 21 May Images in this review. A must read to understand therapy better. I can't help smiling and ruminate about what a therapeutic experienced l'd. As opposed to what pop culture might make us believe, therapy is not about just lying on the couch, spilling out everything to a therapist. Therapy is a process, an arduous journey. There needs to be an establishment of some sort of trust first and a therapist is not a vending machine, that they give an answer on the platter on Day 1.
Why are we so scared of discussing our mental state of mind, the invisible storm brewing in our he but are quick to divulge our physical health issues and even sex lives? Through the medium of her 4 clients, their lives and painful experiences, along with her own experience with therapy, Lori Gottlieb, a psychotherapist, weaves an utterly human narrative, peeling back layers in order to help her patients reach the deepest and darkest parts of themselves and the deep rooted insecurities, which they are too afraid to confront.
She gently steers them in the right direction, making them make sense of their jumbled up thought processes, helping them overcome the obstacles and convincing them that their worth is not associated with the choices they've made.
In this manner, she compels the readers to the same. She gives us a glimpse into the nature of a therapist's workings, as well as what people perceive of her, teaching us a lot about compassion and empathy, not only with others but also ourselves, and making us understand our relationship with others around us. She also touches upon the topic of seeking therapy on the basis of gender, in a patriarchal society like ours. It's an absolutely riveting and intimate book, eloquently put together, relatable and hilarious, making you either laugh out loud or chuckling ever so often and making you feel all sorts of emotions as you cheer for everyone in the book and is not at all preachy.
She even touches upon a few disorders and common terms in therapy, explaining them quite succinctly and theories by certain scholars. Whatever you are going through right now, will pass soon so just hang in there and keep fighting and going after things you want. Please do seek help if you feel like. By Anukriti chaturvedi on 3 February If you are a human being who has EVER struggled with anything, you need this book. One of the best books I have come across so far.
At first I was just blown away by the instant connection I felt. The story revolves around the stories of 5 different characters including Lori herself. Reading this book was like a therapeutic journey in itself. It helped me realise things and I got more clarity over things and situations. It covers real stories of real people and somehow at some point of time it resonated with me. It was a kind of self reflection. Although I was reading this book at a pace I have never read any book before but at the same time I never wanted to come to it's end. I really couldn't get enough of it.
The book focuses on mental health of people. Our mental health is affected by numerous of factors such as our past experiences, sufferings, loss, grief, betrayals, depression etc. We often don't realise it or talk about it but mental health is as important as physical health is. Rarely do we talk about it because either we consider it non ificant or we are afraid of being judged by others.
But we all must agree that "the wounds that do not bleed hurt the most. So, from what I have learnt from this book is, mental health is crucial too and there is nothing to be ashamed of while taking about it. For me this reading was equivalent to attending a therapy session. I got a deeper understand of myself. May be you really should talk to someone.! See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. Of course, the title of the book is less important than what's inside and this memoir that tells the story of Lori Gottleib and her patients holds our attention from beginning to end. Each week Julie comes for therapy to help her come to terms with her death.
We follow Julie in therapy from her first diagnosis of cancer to her quiet death and few readers will not take a few moments to sit back and think about loved ones they have lost and then cry with Lori and Julie. Always remember that girls. What is essential is invisible to the eyes. Lori listens to John with her heart and sees in the depths of his being the love that is hidden there that only needs someone like Lori to recognize and then help John find his way home to the person he was meant to be. She is so skilled as a writer that we feel like she is talking to us and we can make conversation with her.
But Lori has learned not to take herself too seriously. In her book we see her come to terms with her humanity. She knows that like her patients she often takes one step forward and two steps back. Lori tells us what we already know, that no easy answers exist for anyone. But the Buddha, Jesus, and all the great teachers know what Lori has shown so well in her memoir, that in the end, love wins.
If we hold on to that great truth we will have the strength to face the challenges that are a part of all our lives. I wish Lori were here at my desk so that I could thank her in person for her wonderful book, but this review will have to do instead.
Baffled by the five star reviews. I am actually struggling to find words to convey how long and self indulgent this book is. The basic premise is great. Therapist weaves patient stories with her own for an engaging narrative about humanity. It's crippled by the author's utter lack of insight into her patients, and more so herself.Looking for her maybe you
