A fascinating read blending psychology, mystery, revenge, and redemption. I've read a number of Yalom's books but this one is by far my favorite. I recommend it highly.
I read this while I was in graduate school studying to become a psychotherapist. It scared me! Great read. Recommended!
A surprising look at therapy and therapists. Good read and informative on the subject of psychoanalysis.
Interesting look into the minds of therapists.
Great thought-provoking read...complex interwoven stories. Very interesting!
Among those doing the lying are Carolyn, who hopes to ruin the career of psychotherapist Ernest Lash because she believes his advice led her husband to seek a divorce. Then there is the gambler whose plan is to lure another psychotherapist into malpractice so he can sue and pay off his debts. In Yalom's world, the relationship between therapist and patient is a tricky one indeed, and it's sometimes hard to tell who needs advice and counseling more--the patient lying on the couch or therapist sitting nearby
Funny...........if you ever wondered what therapists are really thinking, as their patients spill their guts out. Very entertaining read throughout, with a great ending.
