bookaddict reviewed The Mummy at the Dining Room Table : Eminent Therapists Reveal Their Most Unusual Cases on
Helpful Score: 3
Very, very funny collection of unusual cases from many different psychiatrists, with titles like "The Man Who Wanted His Nose Cut Off" and "The Woman Who Should Have Been Depressed." Rough writing, on the whole (not a literary masterpiece), but entertaining, especially since all the stories are *true*.
An odd book with an odd title but an interesting book nonetheless. Famous psychotherapists that most Psychology majors will recognize by name (Albert Ellis, William Glasser, Arnold Lazarus and Harville Hendrix amongst them) reveal some of their most bizarre and, in some cases, disturbing experiences with patients. A couple of these stories were so bizarre that I felt a little ill while reading them. Others were humorous, some were interesting from a clinical point of view. This is a book that anyone with an interest in psychology, be it layperson or clinician, would enjoy. I recommend it.
