9780465097432: Creatures of a Day: And Other Tales of Psychotherapy

"The publication of Creatures of a Day is reason to celebrate." --Steven Pinker
In this stunning collection of stories, renowned psychiatrist Irvin D. Yalom describes his patients' struggles--as well as his own--to come to terms with the two great challenges of existence: how to have a meaningful life yet reckon with its inevitable end. We meet a nurse who must stifle the pain of losing her son in order to comfort her patients' pains, a newly minted psychologist whose studies damage her treasured memories of a lost friend, and a man whose rejection of psychological inquiry forces even Yalom himself into a crisis of confidence.
Creatures of a Day is a radically honest statement about the difficulties of human life, but also a celebration of some of the finest fruits--love, family, friendship--it can offer. Marcus Aurelius has written that "we are all creatures of a day." With Yalom as our guide, we will find the means to make our own day not only bearable, but also meaningful and joyful.

Review :

"Stunning."―Salon

"Creatures of a Day is just what the doctor ordered!"―Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for Stone

A remedy more powerful than any fad or pill could promise."―Washington Post

"Poignant and bracing."―Los Angeles Review of Books

"Stunning."

"These individual accounts of emotional challenges and resolutions--from a man ashamed of his hoarding to a woman with a terminal cancer diagnosis--shine a brilliant light on what it means to be human and to need help."―Daniel Menaker, author of The Treatment and My Mistake: A Memoir

"Irvin Yalom has produced a book of such piercing depth that to enter into it is transformative. You feel less like you are reading Creatures of a Day than that it is reading you."―Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, McArthur Fellow and author of Plato at the Googleplex and Betraying Spinoza

"Dr. Yalom has written a magical book. Anyone who has ever thought about his or her own aging or mortality will love this book."―George Valliant, professor of psychiatry, Harvard University, and author of Triumphs of Experience and Aging Well

"Yalom sees the therapist as a poet. He sees therapy as an art. And he sees his clients as fellow poets, working the high wire, along and with him."―Patrick T. Reardon, Chicago Tribune

"This book is the best of its kind I've read to date, offering a tender and credible look behind the curtain, through a powerful series of vignettes."―Miranda Palmer, PsychCentral
