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.

Critiques

"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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A book about humanity

This book was insightful into the human condition, as the speaker showed us the compassion she had for others’ pain, as well as her own. The stories were raw and honest and so beautifully told. I thought of myself through the experiences of others and came out with a new hopeful perspective. The author clearly has such admiration for humanity and it’s complexities. I loved this book and read it all too quickly. I know you’ll enjoy it!

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!"

Hard to finish!

While there were a few interesting and poignant stories in the book (Julie's story in particular), I found myself having a hard time finishing! The author reveals very specific details about her patients' lives, but she was pretty vague and guarded about her own. For example, she talks about a "mystery illness" that was really affecting her quality of life, but instead of exploring how that made her feel, she glosses over it, and never provides much closure to the reader. This book was a bit of a downer, and I don't think I'd recommend it.

Mixed Bag

The author had interesting insights into how therapy works and how therapy sessions play out. But the cloying feel good stories of each of her patients were not credible and seemed almost superficial. I lost patience when each of her patients had sudden shifts in perspectives and “happy” endings. Relating the joyful funeral or the busy executive’s new appreciation for his family or the older woman’s ridiculously enriched life- just seemed contrived and rather ridiculous. Why does the author feel the need to tie up convenient closure for each of these patients? I prefer a more realistic (and just as uplifting) exposure of therapy’s benefits.

too much focus on John

I really wanted to like this book. But Gottlieb spends too much time sharing session information about her client, John, who refers to everyone as "idiots." I was much more interested in the parts where she discusses her own therapy and her sessions with the cancer patient, but I fail to understand other readers'/listeners' enthusiasm for the "story."

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.

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*

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.

Wonderful

This is one of the best books I have ever read. Charming, thrilling, sensitiv, deep insights and full of love. An opener to our inner space. First I just wanted to read/hear an English Audiobook to get back into the language. Now, I feel sorry that it’s over. Wonderful speaker, wonderful story and often I burst out of tears esp. when it was about July and Gab. It is a must read book and I have already ordered a German one for my wife. It will be published in Mid 2020!
Better than another fake Happiness or parenting book, Thanks to Lori, good decision you made :-)
One needs to read the book to understand, but I don’t want to spoiler.

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!

Really a great book

Immersing myself in this book during a holiday has been a real treat. It's humorous, thought provoking and moving. The narration was very good, too. This is one of those books that makes a perfect present, maybe even to yourself.
