Writers on Therapy

edited by Jason Shindler

Reviewed November 21, 2001.
William Morrow, 2000.  220 pages.

I enjoy personal essays.  This is a book of personal essays by talented authors springing from their different experiences with psychotherapy.  They go all over the place with it.  Some of the essays are light and humorous, some are about heavy burdens lifted.

Writers are a quirky lot, and the topic of therapy brings up many of the quirks.  I found it amazing the many different directions where they led my thinking, all from the same starting point.  I enjoyed this book and found it thought-provoking.  I wouldn’t necessarily recommend going out and buying it (unless you’re particularly interested in the topic), but if you can find it at your library, you’ll find some fun and interesting reading.
