's review

it was amazing

We can’t have change without loss, which is why so often people say they want change but nonetheless stay exactly the same.

Disclaimer: I went to therapy for two years and documented that experience publicly (https://codingfearlessly.com/two-year...).

I found this book to be an honest, engaging, and warm portrayal of what happens in therapy. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to everyone.

One of the reasons the book worked so well for me is because Lori Gottlieb explores both sides of therapy. She covers her own breakup story and subsequent going to therapy. And she also tells a couple of stories of her therapy clients. This way, the book provided a fully connected picture.

I'm glad that this book exists beyond the fact that I've enjoyed it. The more books contain an in-depth exploration of mental health, the better. There are too many popular books that advise powering through and going to war with yourself. "Maybe You Should Talk to Someone" provides a good counter-balance.
