A Publishers Marketplace Buzz Book


"Therapists play a special and invaluable role in the lives of the 30 million Americans who attend sessions, but have you ever wondered where they go when they need to talk to someone? Veteran psychotherapist and New York Times best-selling author Lori Gottlieb shares a candid and remarkably relatable account of what it means to be a therapist who also goes to therapy, and what this can teach us about the universality of our questions and anxieties."
--Thrive Global, "10 Books We Can't Wait to Read in 2019"

"Some people are great writers, and other people are great therapists. Lori Gottlieb is, astoundingly, both. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is about the wonder of being human: how none of us is immune from struggle, and how we can grow into ourselves and escape our emotional prisons. Rarely have I read a book that challenged me to see myself in an entirely new light, and was at the same time laugh-out-loud funny and utterly absorbing."
--Katie Couric

"If you have even an ounce of interest in the therapeutic process, or in the conundrum of being human, you must read this book. It is wise, warm, smart and funny, and Lori Gottlieb is exceedingly good company."
--Susan Cain, New York Times best-selling author ofQuiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking

"Shrinks, they're just like us--at least in Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, the heartfelt memoir by therapist Lori Gottlieb. Warm, funny, and engaging (no poker-faced clinician here), Gottlieb not only gives us an unvarnished look at her patients' lives, but also her own. The result is the most relatable portrait of a therapist I've yet encountered."
--Susannah Cahalan, New York Times best-selling author of Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness

"Gottlieb is an utterly compelling narrator: funny, probing, savvy, vulnerable. She pays attention to the small stuff -- the box of tissues and the Legos in the carpet -- as she honors the more expansive mysteries of our wild, aching hearts."
--Leslie Jamison, author of The Recovering: Intoxication and its Aftermath

"This is a daring, delightful, and transformative book. Lori Gottlieb takes us inside the most intimate of encounters as both clinician and patient and leaves us with a surprisingly fresh understanding of ourselves, one another, and the human condition. Her willingness to expose her own blind spots along with her patients' shows us firsthand that we aren't alone in our struggles and that maybe we should talk more about them! Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is funny, hopeful, wise, and engrossing--all at the same time."
--Arianna Huffington, Founder, Huffington Post and founder & CEO, Thrive Global

"Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is ingenious, inspiring, tender, and funny. Lori Gottlieb bravely takes her readers on a guided tour into the self, showing us the therapeutic process from both sides of the couch--as both therapist and patient. I cheered for her breakthroughs, as if they were my own! This is the best book I've ever read about the life-changing possibilities of talk therapy."
--Amy Dickinson, "Ask Amy" advice columnist and New York Times best-selling author of Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things

"I was sucked right in to these vivid, funny, illuminating stories of humans trying to climb their way out of hiding, overcome self-defeating habits, and wake up to their own strength. Lori Gottlieb has captured something profound about the struggle, and the miracle, of human connection."
--Sarah Hepola, New York Times best-selling author of Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget

"With wisdom and humanity, Lori Gottlieb invites us into her consulting room, and her therapist's. There, readers will share in one of the best-kept secrets of being a clinician: when we bear witness to change, we also change, and when we are present as others find meaning in their lives, we also discover more in our own."
--Lisa Damour, New York Times best-selling author of Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood

"I've been reading books about psychotherapy for over a half century, but never have I encountered a book like Maybe You Should Talk to Someone so bold and brassy, so packed with good stories, so honest, deep and riveting. I intended to read a chapter or two but ended up reading and relishing every word."
--Irvin Yalom MD, author of Love's Executioner, and other Tales of Psychotherapy, and professor emeritus of psychiatry at Stanford University.

"Here are some people who might benefit from Lori Gottlieb's illuminating new book: Therapists, people who have been in therapy, people who have been in relationships, people who have experienced emotions. In other words, everyone. Lori's story is funny, enlightening, and radically honest. It merits far more than 50 minutes of your time."
--A.J. Jacobs, New York Times best-selling author of The Year of Living Biblically
