I have 167 highlights and 11 notes in my Kindle for this book. That's a new record for me. "Maybe You Should Talk to Someone" is a beautiful book. Nearly every page is dripping with empathy, as Gottlieb tours us through her pyschotherapy practice, showing the inner lives and thoughts of her patients -- and her own.

It's not a completely original genre (Esther Perel's Mating in Captivity: Reconciling the Erotic and the Domestic), yet what Gottlieb achieves here is as healing as a session of therapy in itself. There are sections and stories that are so bittersweet and poignant, I was in tears (multiple times).

This book is life. It paints vividly what it is to be human -- to suffer loss, to love, to die, to be born. I didn't want it to end.
