I loved this book. The author does a number of nice things, like giving a history of the genesis of modern psycho-analysis, a believable analysis and description of what it must be like to be someone like Nietzsche, the people he associated with and a portrayal of Lou Salome - one of the most interesting women in the past 150 years, all in a fictional setting. Yalom probes these alienated mens feelings and their relationships to love and women and to each other in a psycho-analystic setting.
Yalom is an engaging author. If you are looking for something more interesting, then When Nietzsche Wept is not to be over looked.
