"This book is as engrossing and illuminating as a volume of good short stories. It explores the hidden, fascinating nooks, crannies, and complications of the complex relationship between therapist and patient, a subject that turns out to be endlessly fascinating. One feels the presence of Amatenstein's humane, sensitive, and experienced hand in a collection that is wide-ranging and comprehensive in it's range of issues. Many talented writers on view. Many thought-provoking moments. You don't have to have been on the couch to enjoy this book. All that is necessary is an interest in people and the struggles of modern life.”

As a person who's been through therapyand both loved, and hated, and then loved and hated it againthis book speaks to the experience on the couch unlike anything I've ever read, and reading it has given me not only a better understanding of the therapeutic process, but also a better understanding of myself.”

There were several essays that stood out for me as what I hoped to find in the book : Laura Bogart's "My Shrink's Ultimatum", Jessicla Zucker's "The Pregnant Therapist", Molly Peacock's "Not Even a Smidgen", Alison McCarthy's "How About a Hug?", and Martha Crawford's "Back Into the Wild". These essays stand out as sensitive and bringing to the reader a sense of the complexities and depth of therapy for both therapist and patient. For the most part, the rest of them did not rise to that level.
