Such a good book! Love, loss, death, hope. Holding on and letting go. The future holds a lot of possibilities for us, just as we always have the power to choose our response. In our response, lies our growth and freedom. So is truth in Romain Rolland‘s words, “There is only one heroism in the world: to see the world as it is, and to love it.” 💜

Started this a few days ago. So far I like her writing style and how relatable she is. But I am reading it in short doses because reading about therapy and mental health can be too much to handle I‘m not in the right frame of mind.That‘s why I‘m trying to get a few mins in while I‘m waiting for my shower 😂🤷🏻‍♀️

emilyhaldi I loved this book!! I listened on audio and it was brilliant. Although it admittedly had me sobbing more than once... 1w
ElishaLovesBooks @emilyhaldi It definitely seems like that type of book! I bet the audio was great! 1w
emilyhaldi I think she does a brilliant job of balancing the story of her own life interlaced with the lives of her patients.. each character has such a poignant journey, it's really moving. I'm getting worked up just thinking about it now!! Ha, perhaps I need to read it again 😆 1w
ElishaLovesBooks @emilyhaldi I‘m starting to get that vibe- I really like the way she describes people and the way that therapists think. It is so fascinating! 1w

I LOVED this book. I laughed, I cried and I cried some more. Some really useful insights on therapy and how it can help coming to terms with the baggage we ALL carry around. This book also helped me look at some of my relationships in a new light. A solid ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This book is so powerful. Gottlieb, a therapist, has a sudden breakup with a long term boyfriend and realizes she needs to go talk to someone about it. Her story of therapy intermixed with patients of her own combine to make this non-preachy book about how we are all human and how sometimes we just need help. There are people‘s stories in here and their revelations I won‘t be forgetting for a long time. A lovely, heart wrenching, pick!!!

Cathythoughts Great review ! I like the sound of “ non- preachy” 👍🏻 3mo
Reggie @Cathythoughts I think you would love this book. It‘ll make you bawl. Omg, the tears!!!! 3mo
Tanisha_A I have a slightly hard time reading non-fictions but your review makes me want to pick it up! 👏 3mo

Reggie @Tanisha_A It‘s another one of those doesn‘t read like a nonfiction books, but in the best way possible. There are 4 of her patients she tells you about but as she tells you about them breaks their stories down in a most unobtrusive way that makes you appreciate what she has to say and I think everyone would see someone in their life if not some of themselves in this book. Please give it a try! 3mo
Centique Stacked! 3mo
Crazeedi This sounds very interesting 3mo
Reggie @Centique @Crazeedi It‘s sooo good. It is probably gonna be the X-mas book I give to my reader friends at work. All day today I thought of it. (edited) 3mo

This book shook me to my core. Get the audiobook. Enjoy the ride. I cried while cooking dinner at least once and multiple times in the car and at least once at my desk.

Megabooks So awesome! Totally agree. 3mo
Reggie Multiple cries? the marshmallow teddy bear of my inner self says I‘m in. Stacked. 3mo
Ashley_Nicoletto @Reggie She tells you about four of her patients (names changed etc) and it‘s quite heartbreaking. 3mo

#LilithJuly Lori Gottlieb has been keeping me company this past week. Her honesty and hysteria is endearing and comforting. Making #ManicMonday manageable 😁 still in a reading slump but taking baby steps.

Centique Think of it more as a “slowing” than a slump! It‘s okay for reading to take a bit of a back seat for a little while - you‘ve had an Awesome reading year 👏👏👏 You might benefit from a little break or maybe just a change. However it goes you‘re still a #readingqueen 💕 4mo
TrishB It‘s a temporary thing whilst you have so many other things! 😘 4mo
Megabooks This is a fantastic book! Enjoy. (I may have cried a little at the end.) 4mo

Kalalalatja I‘m reading this at the moment, too, and I‘m learning SO MUCH! I‘m halfway, and already thinking it might end up as one of my top faves this year 👌 4mo
KarenUK Have this one queued up on Audio.... you know I‘m not a big Non-Fic girl, but I think this one might be for me... 🤷‍♀️ 4mo
Cinfhen You‘re going to love this one @KarenUK ♥️ cheaper than seeing a therapist but listening to Lori you get all of the benefits of her wisdom @Kalalalatja @Megabooks 4mo
Cinfhen Thanks @Centique @TrishB its like my brain is stuck in molasses 🧠I just can‘t seem to absorb the words although I am enjoying the “human interaction” 😜 4mo

I discontinued this #audiobook when I got depressed because I wasn‘t ready for it to end, and I couldn‘t deal with other people‘s problems. I‘m feeling better now and finished it up this morning.

Beautiful, thoughtful, cathartic, well narrated. I wholly recommend this book, unless, maybe, you‘re going through heavy stuff yourself. 5⭐️

Saw some pretty lilies on my walk! #bfc #bfcr2 #goteam

Megabooks @RachelO I‘ve decided sleep 4 or so hours at night, then get up early and walk when it‘s cool then naps a little in the afternoon/evening. Best of both worlds!! 4mo

This book is simply fantastic! It's an easy, relatable read intertwined with very deep, complex psychology theories. It will make you laugh, cry, and feel like 'wait, that had happened to me too!' Worth every minute you spend reading it (and the audiobook narration is fantastic too!)

Since I finished an audiobook yesterday and have a credit expiring soon, I browsed Audible for a new book. I don‘t always immediately start listening to books I select with my credits, but I did this time. I would never have expected to choose this book, but the sample was so interesting, so... sometimes it just happens that way.

This was a great read. Lori Gottlieb helps others to find themselves, and experiences the other side in her own therapy. Besides herself, she follows several interesting clients: a jerk who turns out to be hiding his unbearable pain behind his narcisstic mask; a young woman facing terminal illness; an old woman who cannot face her past. Very human, self-revealing, touching, sad, funny, and a lesson in empathy and self-awareness.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

And engaging book about a therapist, her patients, and her own therapy. She does a great job of telling the stories of humanity. Well written and an enjoyable read.

Lori Gottlieb, a therapist unknown to me, has written my favorite book of the year so far. I am a therapist, so this is definitely a personal pick. This is about all the things I care about: human connection, how we share and re-work our stories, the discomfort of being able to help others while not seeing our own lives clearly all the time, humility, change, resilience, and the magic that can happen in the therapy room.

Also, summer is coming!

Gezemice Great review! I enjoyed it, too, and I am not a therapist. @jsw I could not put it down, either! 5mo
