Editorial Reviews

Review

"Grosz's vignettes are so brilliantly put together that they read like pieces of bare, illuminating fiction.... It is this combination of tenacious detective work, remarkable compassion and sheer, unending curiosity for the oddities of the human heart that makes The Examined Life utterly captivating." --The Sunday Times

"By turns edifying and moving.... Grosz offers astute insights into the perplexities of everyday life." --Financial Times

"Stephen Grosz has condensed thousands of hours of consultations into this gem.... Grosz writes lucidly and with sensitivity, treating his patients with respect. The cases are sprinkled with wise reflections.... Highly recommended." --The Independent
