Creatures of a Day: And Other Tales of Psychotherapy
Wisdom. Almost every person spends part of each day figuring out how to live, and eventually spends part of each day figuring out how to die. Psychiatrist Irvin D. Yalom tells the stories of ten of his patients in a book titled, Creatures of a Day: And Other Tales of Psychotherapy. The result is insight into therapy; an intimate view of the relationship between one doctor and some of his patients; and great wisdom about the meaning of life and how to live well and die well. I was enthralled by this book, and Yalom’s openness. Readers with any connection to psychotherapy will especially enjoy reading this book, but I think the appeal extends to anyone who thinks about the meaning of life.
Rating: Five-star (I love it)
