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.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book, as therapy is not a subject I have any interest in. It made me laugh and cry and I highly recommend it. Narration was also wonderful.
Really wanted to enjoy this but...
I couldn’t deal with the voice... too fast and robotic sounding.
