Classic Yalom Gem
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 24, 2016
Ordered. Delivered. Read it. What can I say, it's another gem. Yalom quit surprising me a few books back; a yalom book for me = an excellently researched, superbly written book.
A few notes:
For those who have read Love's Executioner and Momma's Boy - Creature's of a day reads more like Love's Executioner.
The stories, like I said, are along the lines of Love's Executioner - in general , though, a bit shorter.
As with Love's Executioner, Creatures of a day is absolutely fundamental for any therapist/patient who finds themselves thinking about the dr/patient relationship. It is especially relevant to those 'radical' therapists who, like Yalom, lean in, and who aren't afraid of a bit of personal exposure.
If you are put off by a book (and author) routinely recommended to professionals, don't be. This book is as jargon-free and colloquial as they come.
