Baffled by the five star reviews. I am actually struggling to find words to convey how long and self indulgent this book is. The basic premise is great. Therapist weaves patient stories with her own for an engaging narrative about humanity. It's crippled by the author's utter lack of insight into her patients, and more so herself. Instead of compelling case histories she drones on and on for chapters about crying on her own therapist's couch, while skipping pathologically briefly over interesting things she seems to have done. It's 411 pages of her getting over being dumped. I'm actually getting irritated just remembering. Please buy The Examined Life by Stephen Grosz instead.

This read like a magazine article in an Oprah Winfrey magazine. The author is arrogant beyond measure and instead of self-revealing, she is incredibly self-indulgent and arrogant. I'm in Television. I went to Stanford. I got into Medical school. I had a test tube baby?! "What an idoit!"

We never hear about her relationship with her own parents, and religious perspective on death, hers or others, any feelings she might have struggled with around a mystery illness, or what happened to the book on Happiness and the retainer.

She charges very wealthy people or ones with good insurance for 50 minutes of her time for years and years. Psychotherapy is not better than drugs if this is the result. She is self-absorbed and pedantic. It was like a bad movie you keep watching thinking "It's GOT to get better!" Nope. I want my money back!!!!

This is a stream of consciousness
book and I am left feeling like the writer is wandering in the dark continually. Not slightly interesting.

I am halfway through the book and I’m bored. I am a psychotherapist, and I am not impressed with Ms. Gottlieb. I am not impressed with her as a therapist, I am not impressed with her limited heterosexual world All this heterosexual angst is boring.
Also, someone reviewed and mentioned that they thought this book was unethical and possibly betraying client confidentiality. John, has many previous therapists because they’re all “idiots “” so all of John’s old therapists get to know who she’s talking about too. It’s time to get over trying to be cutesy and girly and grow up.
