9780465029648: 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

Descripción INGRAM PUBLISHER SERVICES US, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. All of us are creatures of a day, wrote Marcus Aurelius, rememberer and remembered alike. In his long-awaited new 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, and how to reckon with its inevitable end. In these pages, we meet a nurse, angry and adrift in a morass of misery where she has lost a son to a world of drugs and crime, and yet who must comfort the more privileged through their own pain; a successful businessman who, in the wake of a suicide, despairs about the gaps and secrets that infect every relationship; a newly minted psychologist whose study of the human condition damages her treasured memories of a lost friend; and a man whose rejection of philosophy forces even Yalom himself into a crisis of confidence. Their names and stories will linger long after the book s last page is turned. Like Love s Executioner, which established Yalom s preeminence as a storyteller illuminating the drama of existential therapy, Creatures of a Day is funny, earthy, and often shocking; it is a radically honest statement about the difficulties of human life, but also a celebration of some of the finest fruits-love, family, friendship-that life can bear. We are all creatures of a day. With Yalom as a guide, we can find in this book the means not just to make our own day bearable, but meaningful-and perhaps even joyful.
