4.0 von 5 Sternen Honesty To A Fault Can Be Reality, 15. Mai 2005
Von 
Martin A Hogan "Marty From SF" (San Francisco, CA. (Hercules)) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Dr. Yalom has created a collection of stories regarding ten patients and their experiences. What is unique about Dr. Yalom's writing is that he is free and open in describing his own feelings about and towards his patients. These cover a full range of emotions, including frustration, anger, disgust and empathy. Usually one reads about the patient, but in these encounters, Dr. Yalom almost bares as much of his own pathos as his patients and that can be unsettling.
One patient understands and is finally relieved of her eight-year obsession with a younger man, but is left with the reality of her own boring octogenarian life. Another regards a man who is dying of cancer and would like to rape all women, especially those in his therapy group. He is filled with anger, but finally understands how to change his human flaw before death. Yet another chapter is just called, "Fat lady" and this is one where Dr. Yalom really lets loose with his patient. He empathizes and completely understands her history and pain, yet readily admits to being disgusted by her appearance and was surprised that he could actually get his arms around her in a final hug.
Some may find his technique of psychotherapy obscenely honest, yet it does put the practitioner on the same plane as the patient. To many, that will be upsetting - to realize that the person helping you is only a human guide for your own journey towards "wellness".

5.0 von 5 Sternen An entertaining treatment of a serious subject, 7. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Having read one of Yalom's fiction works, I expected to enjoy this book, and I did - immensely. I like psychology and read a lot of non-fiction works. This book deals with a serious subject in an entertaining way, the stories read like fiction and are certainly "stranger than fiction." In the Prologue, Yalom provides a brief introduction to Existential Psychotherapy, a core part of his technique. This is not a self-help or how-to book, but one can learn from the examples while enjoying the easy narrative writing style. Anyone with an appreciation for psychotherapy should love this book. Even those who think shrinks should be shrunk would probably find it entertaining and interesting if not enlightening.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thank goodness I'm not alone!, 6. Oktober 1998
As a graduate student in counseling, I was both excited and relieved by this candid account of Dr. Yalom's own experiences with ten very unique clients. He lets us see what he was thinking, shows us that we aren't alone in thinking some patients are boring, others completely frustrating. Dr. Yalom is a brilliant, yet completely honest human, and I have learned as much, or more, from his writings as I have in my formal counseling education. A must read for anyone interested in studying to be a therapist or thinking about getting therapy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A truely beautiful book, 2. April 1998
I loved this book because it illustrates so beautifully the inescapable challenges and contradictions at the centre of existence. In the words of one of Professor Yalom's patients "everyone has a heart" and we are permitted a rare insight into the therapeutic relationship to feel and understand how these hearts beat, bleed and heal. This book provides unforgettable insights on human relationships and the nature of therapy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen unputdownable, 16. April 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Es sind sehr interessante Geschichten über Menschen, ihre Schicksale und schrägen Bewältigungstechniken. Yalom beschreibt die Fälle sehr spannend und unterhaltsam. Dabei gibt er sehr viel preis, von dem was sich hinter den Kulissen und im Kopf des Therapeuten abspielt. Er berichtet von seinen langjährigen Erfahrungen, seinen Erkenntnissen und seinen eigenen Schwächen. Ein gutes Buch für alle, die sich für unser aller Innenleben interessieren und die keine Neigung zum Fremdschämen haben.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ten moving and instructive tales of psychotherapy, 22. Juni 2006
Von 
HORAK (Zug, Switzerland) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
The first case presented by Dr Yalom is a seventy-year-old lady called Thelma who fell in love with her previous therapist Matthew 8 years ago and has thus to deal with the difficult ethical question whether a therapist should be allowed to seduce a patient or be seduced by the patient.

Carlos is virtually alone in the world and his obsession is to make love to as many women as possible, never twice to the same one.

Betty is an extremely obese, plain, boring and deeply depressed twenty-seven year old woman. Because the therapist may sometimes be rebuked by a patient's physical appearance, this gives the opportunity to the author to talk about the concepts of transference and countertransference.

Penny is a thirty-eight year old woman whose daughter died four years previously, whose husband abandoned her and whose son is in jail and the other hiding. She suffers from acute bereavement.

Elva had been traumatised and suffers from post-traumatic stress, she feels unsafe, has a reduced startle threshold and is hypervigilant.

Dave needs the therapist's help because he wants him to be the keeper of his love letters.

Marie remains frozen in grief three years after the death of her husband and the only way to help her is an attempt to be treated by a hypnotherapist.

Saul worked for a year at the Stockholm Research Institute and he is convinced that his research there was not really appreciated. When a first letter, then a second and a third arrive from the Institute, Saul is convinced that they are writing to him about the poor quality of his work and dares not open them. He then falls into a terrible depression.

Marge's own evaluation is that she is nothing, garbage, a creep, a cipher. When her therapist leaves the city after treating her for ten years, she seriously considers suicide...

And finally there is Marvin who at sixty-four starts developing disabling migraine headaches which result in impotence.

In each case, Dr Yalom carefully describes his work as a psychotherapist in order to help his patients overcome their problems. One can only feel a strong empathy with each individual sufferer and marvel at the technique and stratagems the therapist has to use to cure those troubled personalities.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just a Note, 6. April 2000
Just wanted to add that I'm sure therapists can learn more about the therapy process by reading this book, and clients can benefit not only from relating to the patients presented in the book -- but _also_, the added insight from getting a feel for the "big picture," of what the therapist is trying to do, can be very helpful to those in the recovery and healing process. One also leaves the stories with a great sense of admiration for Yalom. Yalom does a great job of verbalizing the process of counseling, with its infinite nuances.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Honest, humorous and educational, 14. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Dr. Yalom certainly does not put himself on a pedestal. He is honest about his prejudices and shortcomings and because of that, is able to overcome them in many cases. His personal belief, "an unexamined life is not worth living" serves him, his patients, and his readers very well. Whether you are considering therapy, have been through therapy, or are simply interested in getting to know yourself a little better, this book is highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very honest look at psychotherapy, not brutal but human., 23. Oktober 1999
I have read only the first half of this book, but find myself entirely impressed by Yalom's reassuring sense that his readers are given about honest reactions to clients, and his strategies for dealing with countertransference. Very eloquently written; as a graduate student, I only wish I could observe Yalom in action.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A soft, deep touch, to the human soul., 17. August 1999
Von 
Dalmonte Roberto (Assemini, Cagliari ITALY) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
In the last 10 years I read a lot about psychotherapy and most of the time I learned something new and useful. However, most often, the author would try to "sell you" his truth, his method as something truly superior to all the others. His method should be present in everybody's life like the water on our planet. Instead Dr. Yalom's book is full of stimulating doubts. The question we should ask ourselves to get our answers and live to the fullest. It's an honest, warm book
