Description

In his long career, eminent psychotherapist and author Irvin Yalom has pressed his patients and readers to grapple with life's two greatest challenges: that we all must die, and that each of us is responsible for leading a life worth living. In Creatures of a Day, he and his patients confront the difficulty of these challenges. Although these people have come to Yalom seeking relief, recognition, or meaning, they discover that such things are rarely found in the places where we think to look.

Like Love's Executioner and Yalom's other writings, Creatures of a Day lays bare the necessary task we each face every day: to make our own lives meaningful.

A book of rich experience, wonderfully narrated

If you could sum up Creatures of a Day, and Other Tales of Psychotherapy in three words, what would they be?

Irvin Yalom is a well-respected psychiatrist and psychotherapist who is well on in years. In this book, he shares some of his most moving therapy encounters, bringing us right into the room. He is warm, human, and without arrogance in these sessions and shows considerable respect and professional affection. Traber Burns is a wonderful narrator for Irvin Yalom. He does a superb job of capturing Yalom's voice, inflection and emotions -- from calm empathy to surprise. Being an account of therapy sessions the book consists largely of conversations, and Traber captures the different personalities or moods of each of the speakers -- therapist and the different patients -- so that you're never wondering who is talking, even if you've just restarted the recording.

With narration a 4, better narration a 5.

I loved the book it was an excellent read as one who follows Yalom religiously. However, I had some difficulty listening to this narration. I often found it confusing as to who was speaking as the distinction between characters and narrator was not always the best. I also thought that listening to an obviously older voice used for younger characters was part of the problem for me.
It's probably a minor personal preference so I would recommend this audiobook as is

Fascinating and entertaining

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

You will get an inside view into one of the great minds in psychology, his personal reflections and how he approaches his work with each patient.

What did you like best about this story?

The individual patients stories and Yalom's inner thought/feeling process.

What does Traber Burns bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator has a very warm tone to his voice and he conveys the essential kindness in Yalom's responses to his patients.

Love executioner better

The examples were selected to support his theory of death anxiety. But not too bad at all. Worth the read

Old Man Look At My Life, This Book's Made Me Bluer


"Old man, look at my life, I'm a lot like you were."

N. Young, "Old Man," 1972.

Dr. Irvin Yalom is a highly respected 84-year-old psychiatrist, who describes himself as an existential psychotherapist, providing consultations with the overriding philosophy that "we all must die" and "each of us is responsible for leading a life worth living." In the past, I've enjoyed mixed success with books by psychiatrists in which they provide an internal view of variety of anonymous cases. For example, I loved AN EXAMINED LIFE and THE MAN WHO MISTOOK HIS WIFE FOR A HAT and disliked the sterile, historical analysis of SHRINKS...

Here, I didn't like this book. I should have been forewarned by the term "existential" that this would be a morbid look at cases of mostly very elderly patients and patients with terminal illnesses. No disrespect intended, but this is way too depressing for me to enjoy. Instead, it put me in a major funk. I'd try to add some levity here, such as saying that the book should be subtitled "A Fly on Geritol Wall," but the book fails to lend itself to any humor whatsoever.

Refreshing

Another excellent and refreshing addition by Yalom. Thought provoking and insight building. Another must read in Yalom's case vignette collection.

Die klügsten Bücher der Welt

Die Romane, Fachbücher und Geschichtensammlungen des Irvin Yalom gehören zu den klügsten Büchern der Welt.
In seinem Meisterwerk "Existentielle Psychotherapie" erzählt Yalom von der Begegnung zwischen einem altgedienten katholischen Seelsorger und dem großen französischen Staatsmann und Schriftsteller André Malraux. In spiritueller Suchbewegung habe Malraux den Gottesmann gefragt was er denn aus fünfzig Jahren Seelsorge und Beichtpraxis über die Menschen gelernt habe. Die Antwort des Gottesmannes fiel genial tiefsinnig aus: Die Menschen sind alle viel unglücklicher und leidbehafteter als man gemeinhin annimmt und so etwas wie eine erwachsene Person gibt es nicht.
"So etwas wie eine erwachsene Person gibt es nicht": Das sollte als Inschrift über der Eingangstüre jeder Psychotherapeutenpraxis stehen. In seinem neuesten Buch erzählt der "begnadete Erzähler" Irvin Yalom wie schon in "Die Liebe und Ihr Henker"(Love's Executioner) von gleichsam mustergültigen psychotherapeutischen "Sitzungen".
Und jede Zeile atmet die große Leidenschaft des Gottvaters der (amerikanischen) Psychotherapie: Verstehen wollen.
Ob Schreibblockade oder zerrüttete Familienverhältnisse, ob Liebeskummer, Erfolg und Scheitern, Trauer, Todesangst,Verlustschmerz, Sex- oder Spielsucht.Dem weisen Menschenkenner aus Kalifornien ist nichts Menschliches fremd.
Yalom schreibt so schön und klar, so tief und geschliffen, so einfühlsam und klug das der hingegebene Leser/Hörer gar nicht anders kann als das Glück des Verstehens zu empfinden.😊😊😊
