Description

Now being developed as a television series with Eva Longoria and ABC!  

"An irresistibly addictive tour of the human condition." (Kirkus, starred review)

"Rarely have I read a book that challenged me to see myself in an entirely new light, and was at the same time laugh-out-loud funny and utterly absorbing." (Katie Couric)

"This is a daring, delightful, and transformative book." (Arianna Huffington, founder, Huffington Post and founder & CEO, Thrive Global)

"Wise, warm, smart, and funny. You must read this book." (Susan Cain, New York Times best-selling author of Quiet)

From a New York Times best-selling author, psychotherapist, and national advice columnist, a hilarious, thought-provoking, and surprising new book that takes us behind the scenes of a therapist's world - where her patients are looking for answers (and so is she).  

One day, Lori Gottlieb is a therapist who helps patients in her Los Angeles practice. The next, a crisis causes her world to come crashing down. Enter Wendell, the quirky but seasoned therapist in whose of­fice she suddenly lands. With his balding head, cardigan, and khakis, he seems to have come straight from Therapist Central Casting. Yet he will turn out to be anything but.  

As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her patients' lives - a self-absorbed Hollywood producer, a young newlywed diagnosed with a terminal illness, a senior citizen threatening to end her life on her birthday if nothing gets better, and a 20-something who can't stop hooking up with the wrong guys - she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very ones she is now bringing to Wendell.  

With startling wisdom and humor, Gottlieb invites us into her world as both clinician and patient, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope between love and desire, meaning and mortality, guilt and redemption, terror and courage, hope and change.  

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is revolutionary in its candor, offering a deeply personal yet universal tour of our hearts and minds and providing the rarest of gifts: a boldly revealing portrait of what it means to be human and a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious lives and our power to transform them.

Commentaires

"Brittany Pressley performs this audiobook at a fast pace that will be familiar to listeners who live in large, bustling cities. But she knows how to moderate her energy for the tender sections, and her overall performance sounds authentic, conversational, and true to the core intentions of the author's story....Portrayed by Pressley, [the author] also sounds like someone you know, which makes her observations and insights all the more accessible." (AudioFile Magazine)

Maybe, just maybe, YOU should talk to someone...

I finished this book yesterday and I don’t know what to say. It deals with so many issues that I am not sure where to start. First things first, this is a memoir and not usually my kind of literature. I have read some and loved them, but I don’t usually read them.

Anyway, I saw a youtuber talking about this book and how it made her cry, so I decided to buy it. And I don’t regret it a bit. I loved this book. Deeply. Lori tells not only her stories but the stories of her patients as well, and because she cares genuinely about her patients, it made me care for each one of them. Gosh, I saw a little bit of myself in each one of them, after all, the human experience is universal. The quest for connection, for a deeper meaning in life, for love, for fulfillment, these things are universal. Trauma is universal. In whatever way it presents itself. Fear is universal. Fear of death is universal. Regret is universal. I saw myself a lot in Charlotte. We don’t share the same story or the same personality, but we share some behaviors like auto sabotage. I found myself sharing the same feelings as Rita, even though she is 70 years old. Gosh, I loved July. I loved her family, her husband. I loved her deeply and I would have loved to have met her. I would have loved the chance to hug her. I know she didn’t need my hug; I know she was loved until the end, still, each time Lori would talk about her, all I wanted to do is to hug her deeply and to tell her that I love her. And John, with his perfect teeth and his narcissistic behavior, a way he found to deal with the pain he had gone through. And Wendell, well, he was the best, wasn’t he?

This story is about Lori, but it’s bigger than that. It’s about the humanity within all of us. The human experience, our mortality and human connection. How we all crave for connection even though some of us don’t know how to respond to it, where to find it. Most of us don’t know how to love or how to be loved. How to let someone love us. Because we are struggling to love ourselves. We are all struggling with something. Our past, our future, our present. Our childhood, our mortality, our health, our fears, and all of these things are intertwined.

Being alive is hard. Dealing with the overwhelming emotions and feelings tied up with our humanity is hard. And not dealing with them is harder. I wanted to make a list of quotes, but I was so immersed in the story, I didn’t even remember that.

Life is a trip to Holland. It really is. You aren’t prepared for it. It just happens and you are forced to deal with whatever comes. But maybe you don’t have to do it alone. Maybe you should ask for help, you should cry, you should be afraid, you should be vulnerable…maybe you should talk to someone.

This was also my first audiobook. I loved the narrator. She is amazing.

Fantastic book

Fascinating, gripping, and illuminating stories exploring the human condition. We all can use therapy to understand ourselves better and help the future generations move toward a reconciliation with themselves, each other, and the world around them.

So boring, I can't return this fast enough

I'm very perplexed by all the positive reviews for this book. The narrator is possibly the worst one I've ever listened to- she sounds like a robot with little inflection. I imagine maybe I'd like the book more with a different narrator. This is the first Audible book I've returned because I just couldn't listen to it after getting about halfway in. The story rambles and even at this point, I don't know where she's going with it.

Skip this one, unless you like having Siri read you to sleep.

I kept waiting for something to happen

I’m not sure who the intended audience was for this book. Someone contemplating or needing counseling? It certainly does normalize the concept and explain a bit about what you would expect but the stories were not interesting so I would say pass if you are looking to be entertained. Good narrator though.

Don’t Bother Waste of Time

This book has no point. Rambling thoughts and stories of a jack of all trades and master of none. Failed marriage, failed engagement, and failed as therapist- but wait she now cons others by spilling patient stories for the price of a book. Can I get my money back?

I'm going to miss the narrator...

Loved it! I literally just finished listening to it and I'm considering listening to it again right now. It provides great insight into how therapy works and why anyone and everyone would benefit of seeing a therapist (the right therapist, that is). I think there is a take-away for everyone in this book.

An Entertaining, Narcissistic Diatribe

The "story" of Gottlieb's life and patients were certainly interesting and entertaining and Pressley's narration was superb. And, it certainly hit on all the benefits of therapy. But, the book felt a bit self-indulgent and maybe even a bit contrived. I'd need to go to the print version to confirm, but were all the "characters" real or were they conglomerations of many people due to privacy issues? I don't think I really ever quite understood why Gottlieb left an amazing opportunity in the TV industry to then leave another amazing gift of medical school at Stanford to then sideline a successful writing career to become a therapist. And, as another reviewer mentioned, the book ends with no real wrap of the author's struggles that are mentioned throughout the book. Contrived specifically for a sequel? I'm thinking the answer to that is "yes!"

A Therapist Analyzes Hersrlf

A therapist goes to therapy. She reflects on her career, love life, and midlife malaise. She uses anecdotes about her clients to support her self-reflections. It was like listening to a friend talk about her life for a very long time. A likable, well-intentioned friend, but I just didn't find it compelling.

Best Book I’ve Read This Year

This book is heartwarming, funny, insightful, and moving. If I had to pick one book I read this year that truly changed how I feel and approach my daily life, it’s this one. Lori’s ability to normalize our humanity and the idea of having a therapist is so grounding. Her emphasis on the importance of connection to others and creating meaning in our lives is both comforting and inspirational.

Great listen, great narration

I loved this. Honest, laugh out loud funny at some moments, and other moments that had be bawling. Intimate without being overwhelming. Narrator was perfectly cast. I’ve already recommended this audiobook to other friends, worth a listen. It made me think seriously about how I talk to myself and made me want to hug my therapist.

An amazing story that touched all five of my senses

This book was comical, yet emotional on every level. I laughed, I cried, I hugged my loved ones a little tighter. A book that was written so well it played like a movie in my head. I could taste the Chinese chicken salad Jon brought into his sessions, I could hear Julie and her boyfriend laughing and crying together, I could see Ruby’s art, and I could feel every emotion expressed throughout this amazing piece of work. Thank you so much for sharing Lori.

Clear your schedule and take a ride

This is an incredible journey through the art of therapy —- told by a therapist who sees a therapist — and the lessons she learns from him and her patients through the years. Expertly crafted, funny, self-deprecating and brutally honest, this is a must listen. I laughed, cried and took deep breathes as Gottlieb wove her life’s work into a book that anyone in therapy or in pain will most likely find astonishingly illuminating in their own lives. I didn’t want it to end.

Engaging read and full of bittersweet moments

As a guy in his 40s just looking for a change from his sci-fi and history books for long work drives, i can't even remember how i landed on this one.

I don't regret it the slightest, but some of my customers will have wondered why their sparkie arrived teary eyed to his work order.

Lovingly written and narrated, I recommend this audiobook dearly.

Ein wirklich ungewöhnliches Buch!

Was für eine Geschichte! Hier geht eine Therapeutin selbst zum Therapeuten und lernt dadurch sehr viel über sich und das Leben an sich. Gleichzeitig erfahren wir viel über andere Lebensentwürfe durch ihre eigenen Patienten, das ist alles sehr süß und liebevoll geschildert. Ich weiß nicht, wie gut dieses Buch wirklich recherchiert ist, aber die vielen Zitate uns Erklärungen über bestimmte Therapieansätze fand ich spannend! Ich habe sehr gerne zugehört!

Unterhaltsam und lehrreich

Gut zu lesen und dabei viele Dinge, die ich mit in mein Leben nehmen konnte. Spannend gemacht, wie die Autorin durch ihre eigene Sicht Dinge darstellt und unterscheidet, was Lehre ist und wie man diese als Person fühlt und manchmal anders handelt, als man besser wüsste...

Good book, but flooded with product placements

I'm only a third into this interesting and entertaining book. But the more I listen to it, the more I get annoyed by the constant product/brand placements, that could easily be avoided by using generic terms. But obviously that would counteract the purpose of product placement.
I usually only listen to non-fiction books and this is the first more "novel" like story (although it seems like a legitimate real story of the author's experience), but I hope this presence of product placements is not common in all such books.

Sehr gut vorgelesen!

Ich hatte sehr viel Spaß mit diesem Hörbuch und es in wenigen Tagen durch gesuchtet.
Die Geschichte regt zum Nachdenken und selbst-reflektieren an. Auf eine gute Weise.
Es ist so gut vorgelesen, dass meiner Meinung nach das Buch dadurch an nichts verliert. Vielleicht sogar dazu gewinnt.
In jedem Aspekt also 5*

loved it!

This is my new favourite book! Lori Gottlieb's clients experience traumatic abysses which makes the reader cry and at the same time let us back relieved: I'm not the only one who's experiencing this or that: that's just life, this is what it means to BE alive, to be human. She explains the process of therapy to us and some theoretical background of psychology in an easy to understand and never boring way. She tells so openly and honest about her own therapy, what is torturing her - it's brave and impressing that a therapist herself reveals so much about her innermost feelings. Despite the often sad and even devastating moments Lori's clients are experiencing/looking back to the book is writing in a upbeat, humourous way with a lot of wit. One feels so connected to the characters and their lifes which makes this an absolute page turner.
And Brittany Pressley is the perfect speaker for this book, her voice, intonation and pace of reading has even improvemed this great work of Lori Gottlieb.
