Everyone is going to find something they can relate with in Lori Gottlieb’s Maybe You Should Talk To Someone. In this beautifully expressive book, we follow the therapist’s somewhat winding career path and her struggle to get over a break up which leads her to seek therapy. Gottlieb gives deep insight to the little known methods of therapy as we read about four of her patients- a high-flying Hollywood executive masking his loss, a terminally-ill newlywed coming to terms with her mortality, an elderly artist with deep regrets and a young woman with alcohol addiction- and when she herself takes the couch. Beyond these tear jerking stories (sad and happy tears), Gottlieb drops several thought provoking nuggets about life and how we deal with the very similar problems we all face as she shines a light on our shared humanity and pushes the reader to delve into their feelings of others…and themselves.
