Excerpt From Summary of Lori Gottlieb's Maybe You Should Talk to Someone
The author had a difficult time making contact with the people in her life, and that was mostly because she would always ask questions and want to understand their point of view. But in reality, she was just being an idiot, and they could see it.
The author went to see John, a television producer, for therapy. She was surprised to discover that underneath his abrasiveness, he was actually quite nice. But after hearing him talk about The Idiot, his TV show’s producer, who made a mistake that angered him, she thought of her own marriage breaking down the night before.
