Maybe You Should Talk to Someone

We have a new book in our After Class collection that is perfect for everyone.  Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, Her Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed by Lori Gottlieb is a fantastic memoir that I read on vacation this summer.  While a book about psychotherapy may not seem like a typical vacation book, it is fascinating, funny, and super readable (it’s even set to become a television drama).  Gottlieb became a psychotherapist after several career changes.  When she experienced a crisis in her personal life, a therapist friend suggested, “maybe you should talk to someone”.  The book alternates with stories about how she became a therapist, her relationships with her patients, and her relationship with her therapist.   As author A.J. Jacobs wrote:  “Here are some people who might benefit from Lori Gottlieb’s illuminating new book: therapists, people who have ever been in therapy, people who have ever been in relationships, people who have ever experienced emotions.  In other words, everyone.”
