Inhaltsangabe

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.

Kritikerstimmen

"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)

Great story: moving and very interesting

I was very moved and couldn't get enough of this book. The narrator has a very pleasant voice and reading speed.

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...

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.

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.

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!

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*

Enjoyably narrative

The book is enjoyably narrative as it follows along the stories of 5 individuals: the author, Lori Gottlieb, and four of her patients (one could also add Lori's eccentric therapist Wendell to the list). It's not a classic self-help book but an Autobiography, tough the author does introduce various concepts of therapy and shares some of her professional insights about therapy.
The book did make me think and overall I enjoyed listening to it quite a lot, yet I still feel like it's lacking a point. I still don't know what the overall "take-home message" was supposed to be. Or was there none? Was there a purpose to the book other than partaking in the lives of these people and seeing therapy from the eyes of a therapist as well as from a patients? I don't know. That's there reason for the 4 stars, I'd still recommend the book though!

I can definetly recommend it

I am not a huge fan of the narrator, but it was alright to listen to.
The Story is definetly an interesting one. It gives a great insight of the work and life of a therapist. And guess what, they are only human. :-) In the middle it gets a bit weary, one loses track of where the author is going with boyfriend, the clients and the happiness book and all of it. But it does get a lot better again towards the end, so stick with it, if you happen to feel this way too.
