Review:

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR "CREATURES OF A DAY" "A quarter of a century ago, I wrote a review in the "Tribune" of Yalom's first book for the general public, "Love's Executioner & Other Tales of Psychotherapy," a similar collection of case studies. What struck me then and what strikes me now with his latest book is Yalom's willingness to expose his flaws and failures.... Just as Yalom's description of the hard-working but flawed therapist rings true, so do his descriptions of his patients and their struggles, especially their struggles with the reality of death.... 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, alone and with him. In their sessions, he and they are alive to the moment - or trying to be. And that's what life is, isn't it?"--Patrick T. Reardon, "Chicago Tribune" "In a profession that exists exclusively behind closed doors, it's rare and precious to get a real peek through the window to witness the raw power of the therapeutic process.... 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" ""Creatures of a Day" serves as something of a companion volume to "Love's Executioner," again offering 10 revealing and creatively crafted clinical case studies of real people.... Throughout, Yalom is wise and well-read, citing passages from Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Marcus Aurelius, Yeats and Greek mythology.... Through Yalom's gentle wisdom, expertise and leading - coupled with dream recognition and patients taking him through the minutiae of a day in their lives - bonding and healing occurs.... [He] welcomes each new case and patient dilemma with an analytical mind, personal empathy and an innate curiosity that drives and shapes the two-person narrative dramas that fill this book."--Kathleen Gerard, "Shelf Awareness" "Personal, honest, sensitive, and respectful, Yalom, now in his 80s, describes frustration and mistakes amid much success. His combination of confidence and humility shows how these qualities work in psychotherapy - a process too often burdened with theory and/or mystique.... This book will inspire therapists at any stage along with lay readers intrigued by the psyche, relationships, and the possibilities of change."--"Library Journal" (starred review) "[Yalom] writes amiably, certainly sympathetically, and always wisely from his point of view as an octogenarian therapist who has seen it all - well, maybe almost all - and who has some useful thoughts about the mysteries of the mind.... [He] offers plenty of pointers for up-and-coming therapists and does so without staking out ideological territory in the ongoing battles among post-Freudians, post-Jungians, and post-everyone-elsians. A humane, highly knowledgeable glimpse of the therapist's couch."--"Kirkus Reviews" "Novelist and psychiatrist Yalom offers 10 tales from his clients that illuminate the gifts of psychotherapy, particularly the hopeful lessons one can glean from it in the context of aging and death.... [He] has genuinely inspiring insights to share about the value of therapy.... The stories Yalom offers of his patients' failures and triumphs are frequently moving and will invoke the reader's empathy."--"Publisher's Weekly" "Poignant and beautiful insights from a wise therapist looking back on a career, a therapist who happens to be a writer I greatly admire - "Creatures of a Day" is just what the Doctor ordered!" --Abraham Verghese, author of "Cutting for Stone" "In "Love's Executioner," Irv Yalom invented a new literary genre: narratives of psychotherapy with the pathos of great fiction and the insight of great essays. For those of us who learned so much about human nature and the human condition from Yalom, the publication of "Creatures of a Day" is a reason to celebrate." --Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of "How the Mind Works" and "The Sense of Style" "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. Only a handful of books can accomplish such a feat. Give praise that one more has entered this rare and precious list."--Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, MacArthur Fellow and author of "Plato at the Googleplex" and "Betraying Spinoza" "I've been a deep admirer of Irvin D. Yalom's writing -- in fiction and nonfiction -- for many years. In "Creatures of a Day," he brings together his profound sense of human suffering and joy with a novelist's eye for detail, for narrative moment. These tales of therapy ring with truth, inviting us to consider the most pressing (moral, spiritual) questions with awe, with hope for transformation. A moving and original work."--Jay Parini, author of "The Last Station" "These individual accounts of emotional challenges and resolutions shine a brilliant light on what it means to be human and to need help. Together they disprove the book's title in a glorious way: they are a permanent beacon of sanity and compassion and thus transcend the very fact of mortality that they often concern."--Daniel Menaker, author of "The Treatment" and "My Mistake: A Memoir" "Dr. Yalom has written a magical book. Anyone who has ever thought about his or her own aging or mortality will love this book. The result will be that of meeting, up close, a truly wise man, a really kind man, and of feeling deeply understood."--George Vaillant, Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard University, and author of "Triumphs of Experience" and "Aging Well"

Descripción The Perseus Books Group, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 212 x 136 mm. 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.
