Maybe You Should Talk To Someone: A Therapist, HER Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed By Lori Gottlieb
From a New York Times best-selling author, psychotherapist, and national advice columnist, a hilarious, thought-provoking, and surprising new book that takes us behind the scenes of a therapist’s world—where her patients are looking for answers (and so is she).
One day, Lori Gottlieb is a therapist who helps patients in her Los Angeles practice. The next, a crisis causes her world to come crashing down. Enter Wendell, the quirky but seasoned therapist in whose office she suddenly lands. With his balding head, cardigan, and khakis, he seems to have come straight from Therapist Central Casting. Yet he will turn out to be anything but.
As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her patients’ lives — a self-absorbed Hollywood producer, a young newlywed diagnosed with a terminal illness, a senior citizen threatening to end her life on her birthday if nothing gets better, and a twenty-something who can’t stop hooking up with the wrong guys — she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very ones she is now bringing to Wendell.
With startling wisdom and humor, Gottlieb invites us into her world as both clinician and patient, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope between love and desire, meaning and mortality, guilt and redemption, terror and courage, hope and change.
Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is revolutionary in its candor, offering a deeply personal yet universal tour of our hearts and minds and providing the rarest of gifts: a boldly revealing portrait of what it means to be human, and a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious lives and our power to transform them.

Art of Thinking Clearly by Rolf DobellKShs1,295.00Add to cart
Have you ever…
Invested time in something that, with hindsight, just wasn’t worth it?
Overpaid in an eBay auction?
Continued doing something you knew was bad for you?
Sold stocks too late, or too early?
Taken credit for the success, but blamed the failure on external circumstances?
Backed the wrong horse?
These are examples of cognitive biases, simple errors we all make in our day to day thinking. But by knowing what they are and how to spot them, we can avoid them and make better choices whether dealing with a personal problem or a business negotiation trying to save money or make money working out what we do or don’t want in life, and how best to get it.
