Reviews

"Authentic . . . raw . . . an irresistibly candid and addicting memoir about psychotherapeutic practice as experienced by both the clinician and the patient." -- New York Times

"[In the end, Gottlieb and her patients] are more aware--of themselves as people, of the choices they've made, and of the choices they could go on to make . . . It's exploration--genuinely wanting to learn answers to the question Why am I like this?, so that maybe, through better understanding of what you're doing, you figure out how to be who you want to become." -- Slate

"A no-holds-barred look at how therapy works." -- Parade

"Who could resist watching a therapist grapple with the same questions her patients have been asking her for years? Gottlieb, who writes the Atlantic's "Dear Therapist" column, brings searing honesty to her search for answers." -- Washington Post

"Reading it is like one long therapy session--and may be the gentle nudge you need to start seeing a therapist again IRL." -- Hello Giggles

"In her memoir, bestselling author, columnist, and therapist Lori Gottlieb explores her own issues -- and discovers just how similar they are to the problems of her clients." -- Bustle

"In prose that's conversational and funny yet deeply insightful, psychologist Lori Gottlieb is here to remind us that our therapists are people, too." -- Refinery 29

"The Atlantic's 'Dear Therapist' columnist offers a startlingly revealing tour of the therapist's life, examining her relationships with her patients, her own therapist, and various figures in her personal life." -- Entertainment Weekly, 20 New Books to Read in April

"Reads like a novel and reveals what really happens on both sides of the couch." -- Men's Health

"A most satisfying and illuminating read for psychotherapy patients, their therapists, and all the rest of us." -- New York Journal of Books

"[Maybe You Should Talk to Someone] explores the ups and downs of life with humor and grace." -- BookBub.com

"Both poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, [Gottlieb] reveals how our stories form the core of our lives." -- Orange County Register

"In her compassionate and emotionally generous new book, Gottlieb . . . pulls back the curtain of a therapist's world....The result is a humane and empathetic exploration of six disparate characters struggling to take control of their lives as they journey back to happiness." -- ALA's Public Libraries Online

"[A] smart, hilarious, insightful book. Lori Gottlieb will have you laughing and crying as she breaks down the problems of her patients, her therapist and herself." -- Patch.com

"Saturated with self-awareness and compassion, this is an irresistibly addictive tour of the human condition." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Written with grace, humor, wisdom, and compassion, this [is a] heartwarming journey of self-discovery." -- Library Journal

"The coup de grace is Gottlieb's vulnerability with her own therapist. Some readers will know Gottlieb from her many TV appearances or her 'Dear Therapist' column, but even for the uninitiated-to-Gottlieb, it won't take long to settle in with this compelling read." -- Booklist

"Sparkling . . . Gottlieb portrays her patients, as well as herself as a patient, with compassion, humor, and grace." -- Publishers Weekly
