Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb, review by Robin Templin
Oh, the humanity! Prepare to be exhausted and exhilarated! Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is an intense therapy session in your own living room. With an author who can read your mind. This memoir will be my number one recommendation for readers who are looking for a good (fill in the blank) book. This one has it all.
Lori is a therapist. She also goes to a therapist. (Because, life.) She shares her struggles and insecurities and those of a few perfectly imperfect clients. Each one so authentic and familiar that you will remember them for a very long time. (I truly did stop and weep for one angry and wounded man's moment of raw disclosure.) There are more than a few words of wisdom and insight that you will tuck away for future reference.
This book is a mirror. It reveals our beautiful scars and our ability to persist, with hope, even in our darkest nights. This book has guts. This is life at its best.
