Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb Book Summary


“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 twenty-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.

Therapy Couch Confidential. This book reads like part memoir and also like a behind the therapist’s clipboard perspective of the process and complexities of psychiatric treatment. At the same time we get a Psychology and Psychotherapy 101 primer. Lori Gottlieb takes uses anecdotal and clinical techniques to demystify key theories and practices that explain the WHY of what we do to make our lives harder and the potential tools for reversing or augmenting them. Gottlieb manages to create an atmosphere where the reader is an invisible third party in the balancing act of the give and take between the patient and therapist. The flow of the book is like a protracted session in itself. One where you vicariously live out the role of the patient and at times play amateur therapist; catching yourself shouting advice you probably are not qualified to give. Her personal transparency also offers us a glimpse at the bumpy road to becoming a therapist, the day-to-day, and the limits of what can and cannot be achieved through psychotherapy. All of it comes together to underline and bolden the purpose and value of therapy. That being the search for meaning. Something it seems we are all desperate for in an instant gratification world. It’s unfortunate our healthcare systems don’t make this path to finding meaning more readily available.

I can’t get enough of Lori!. Loved this book. I can’t believe I enjoyed a memoir. On I go to listen to Lori’s podcasts and other things she has created. What a knowledgeable, inspiring person. I wish she was my therapist!
