From Publishers Weekly
In 10 tales of personal transformation related by the psychotherapist author, each patient makes some headway in overcoming compulsions, depression, hypertension or whatever--yet each also comes face fo face with larger problems such as the inevitability of death or the existential need to give one's life meaning. "Yalom's humanism shines through in these wise, moving stories," commended PW.

From Library Journal
Because Yalom (psychiatry, Stanford Univ.) is not only an accomplished psychiatrist but a gifted storyteller as well, his new book moves at the pace of a suspense thriller, with each chapter providing a fascinating look at the patient-therapist relationship. Yalom gives the reader the opportunity to view up close the intimate, and sometimes startling, relationship that develops between client and therapist. Refusing to paint an artificial picture of therapy as always successful--a truly unique aspect of this work--Yalom also describes relationships in which clients have walked out, never to return; the reader is left to ponder why the relationship ended as it did. At once funny and insightful; highly recommended.- Kim Banks, Columbia Univ. Lib.
