Publisher's Summary

Ever wonder what your therapist is really thinking? Now you can find out...a hilarious, thought-provoking and surprising new book that takes us behind the scenes of a therapist's world.  

Meet Lori Gottlieb, an insightful and compassionate therapist whose clients present with all kinds of problems. There’s the struggling new parents; the older woman who feels she has nothing to live for; the self-destructive young alcoholic; and the terminally ill 35-year-old newlywed. 

And there’s John, a narcissistic television producer, who frankly just seems to be a bit of a jerk. Over the course of a year, they all make progress. But Gottlieb is not just a therapist - she’s also a patient who's on a journey of her own. 

Interspersed with the stories of her clients are her own therapy sessions, as Gottlieb goes in search of the hidden roots of a devastating and life-changing event. 

Personal, revealing, funny and wise, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone opens a rare window onto a world that is most often bound by secrecy, offering an illuminating tour of a profoundly private process.

A healing and therapeutic experience

This is one of the best books I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. The people, their stories, their joys and sorrows are so beautifully encapsulated - you'll feel them acutely.

More importantly, the book will allow you to get in touch with your thoughts and feelings and look at your own life with new lens.

The narration was brilliant and extremely powerful. Definitely a must listen!

Surprisingly resonant, great narration

Sometimes, we come across a book we didn't know we needed to help make sense of our own life. This one was that. Like "The Examined Life" I found the content and marathon come together to create a virtual therapist in my pocket. Give it a go. Definitely.

A slow start but definitely worth the time

I didn't know which direction this book was headed in when I started listening but it turned out to be a heart touching ride as I read along. There are many different stories here and some are bound to connect with you deeply.

Also, the narration is great. I went through the entire book at 1x speed and never felt like speeding it up.

Loved it

The narration made it all the more better but somehow the recording would seem muted in the beginning of each chapter for a couple of words

You'll never get today back

Such an intriguing read. Loved listening to the stories and everyday struggles of patients that in a way reminded me that we aren't alone in our struggles.
