Description

The collection of 10 absorbing tales by master psychotherapist Irvin D. Yalom uncovers the mysteries, frustrations, pathos, and humor at the heart of the therapeutic encounter. In recounting his patients' dilemmas, Yalom not only gives us a rare and enthralling glimpse into their personal desires and motivations but also tells us his own story as he struggles to reconcile his all-too-human responses with his sensibility as a psychiatrist. Not since Freud has an author done so much to clarify what goes on between a psychotherapist and a patient.

The audio version of the book includes an exclusive interview with Dr. Yalom.

You Can’t Make This Stuff Up

The saying, “You can’t make this stuff up” lives in the cases Irvin D. Yalom shares with us. Considering that not much action happens in most of the stories, each has its own way of reaching out and touching you, deeply. Some stories don’t just touch, they grab and hold on. We all, each of us, struggle. In excellent narrative form, Yalom consistently weaves this thread throughout and between the stories. This connected commiseration binds the reader/listener to the perspectives of both the therapist and his patients, while it also keeps the reader/listener in full appreciation of the art of narrative, simply for the sake of story, which in this collection happens to be true and, as such, more intriguing.

Please note, I did not pay attention to the narrator’s by line before engaging in the listen— I know, shame on me. The certainty that the voice in my ear was author Irvin D. Yalom remained fully in tact until the writing of this review. Narrator C.M. Carlson speaks the trials in this book with the ease and connectedness of a person who has known firsthand knowledge of and experience with each patient. Carlson delivers a quintessential voiceover experience— one that is free of a grating voice; over dramatization; insufficient pitch or enunciation; poor or non-existent character distinction; and most difficult of all (in my humble opinion), detectible gaps between story and narrator. I dropped a star because in several areas, extraneous background noise injects itself into the production. Had the noise been more strategically placed, it would have worked well as chapter markers, which was exactly what I thought it was at first. The noise occurs more frequently in the first few stories than the latter. It took me a while to figure out that the rather jilting interruptions were jet engines. This is another prime example of why Audible should add an “Editing” or “Production” rating category. Since there is none, and because the likelihood that Carlson was aware of his proximity to an airport and the correlating noise level, I’m knocking off what could have been a perfect narration score.

Required reading for any therapist

I didn't know this is what I have been looking for until I read it. A must read for therapists, or potential therapist, gives a colorful representation of what it is like to work with clients.

Espectacular read

Personal, incisive, honest and exposing. I enjoyed every single story and the connections that each patient had with my own fears, shame, anger and disappointments. Yalom's candid observations about himself were so meaningful as well. Wow...What a gift of a book!

One of my favourite book

This is probably the third time I read this, but the first time reading this by audiobook. It was portraits quite nicely, and the voice change helps me getting into the scene. Well done!

Beautifully written, wonderfully read!

Carlson beautifully reads these wonderfully insightful case presentations from Yalom, which should be read by any aspiring counseling psychologist. Very difficult to stop listening!!

Fascinating insight into a therapist's world

Beautiful short stories from the practice vault of Dr Yalom. Candid, heartwarming, sometimes shocking. I found some parts of the narration challenging. As each chapter is distinct from one another it was disconcerting to go from one to the next without so much as a pause. It was also difficult to tell the characters apart in some of the stories as there was no change of voice (or maybe i needed to concentrate more!).

Amazing!

There's not much to say that hasn't been said. The stories are enthralling and heart wrenching. The insights are invaluable and made me take pause to look at my own life.

The narrator is fantastic and the best I've heard so far.

Great novel about psychotherapy.

Loved to listen to this novel. The story does show it was written 30 years ago but the themes are relevant to today's culture.

must read for any clinician

aa a therapist this book was very important to me for Yalom's open self-disclosure. it was refreshing for a clinician to open up about their insecurities. very well done, as usual for Irvin Yalom.

the narrator was very good with the exception of the voice for Marvin, that felt a little fake and lazy to me, otherwise the voices were great.

Amazing

Any additional comments?

I couldn't stop listening and I wanted more
This book is thought provoking and for me that's very important when I am reading a book
It gives you the chance to think about the case being presented, and also to think about yourself, similar stories in your life or your loved ones' lives
I did learn a lot, while I absolutely enjoyed it
Learning should be this way, it's not a chore, you listen to true stories and you are learning and growing along with it.
I highly recommend it

Von den letzten vier Dingen

Yalom der beste Geschichtenerzähler seiner Zunft gibt hier in 10 Geschichten Einblicke in sein Seelenleben und das seiner Klienten die mit Liebeskummer, Einsamkeit, Sinnlosigkeitsempfinden, Besessenheit ringen kurzum mit der enormen Anstrengung die es bedeutet ein Mensch zu sein. In der Einleitung skizziert Yalom seinen existentiellen Ansatz und schreibt vom Einfluß der vier letzten Dinge - Tod, Freiheit, Isolation, Sinnlosigkeit - auf das ganze menschliche Treiben. Alles was man Yaloms Büchern nachrühmen kann zeichnet auch diese erste Geschichtensammlung aus: Witzig, menschlich zutiefst verständig, philosophisch und literarisch angereichert, stilistisch brillant, unerschrocken, märchenhaft gut erzählt.
Was ist Psychotherapie in Ihrem Kern? "...ein liebevoller, zutiefst humaner Austausch zwischen zwei Menschen, wobei der eine ( im allgemeinen, aber nicht immer , der Patient) größere Schwierigkeiten hat als der andere..."(Yalom - Die Liebe und ihr Henker - so der Titel der deutschen Ausgabe)
Eine unwiderstehliche Geschichtensammlung. Mögen doch weitere Bücher von Yalom als deutschsprachige Hörbücher erscheinen.

only complaint...

there needs to be a pause at the end of a chapter the jump within milliseconds to the next chapter is irritating.

Very poor timing

This book has really strong stories, but the narrative is performed with horrible timing. at the end of each story next one starts without even a millisecond of space. sometime I was not even sure that one story is finished. also the intonations and emotion transferred by the narrator was really poor. I enjoy Dr. Yalom's books but I'd rather not spoil them with such a limited performance.
