Maybe You Should Talk to Someone (Gottlieb) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
Gottlieb’s book is perhaps the first I’ve read that explains the therapeutic process in no-nonsense terms while simultaneously giving hope to therapy skeptics like me who think real change through talk is elusive.
Judith Newman - New York Times


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


An addictive book that's part Oliver Sacks and part Nora Ephron. Prepare to be riveted.
People


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


A psychotherapist and advice columnist at The Atlantic shows us what it’s like to be on both sides of the couch with doses of heartwarming humor and invaluable, tell-it-like-it-is wisdom.
Oprah Magazine


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


[S]parkling.… Gottlieb portrays her patients… with compassion, humor, and grace. For someone considering but hesitant to enter therapy, Gottlieb’s thoughtful and compassionate work will calm anxieties about the process.
Publishers Weekly


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


(Starred review) [V]ivacious.… Throughout, the author puts a very human face on the delicate yet intensive process of psychotherapy while baring her own demons. Saturated with self-awareness and compassion, this is an irresistibly addictive tour of the human condition.
