by. Robert U. Akeret. His trip is, in part to see how his former patents have been since leaving therapy, and in part to see if his work with them was beneficial at all. As a storyteller, Akeret does a fine job of mixing his personal story in with his patients' stories. As the book progresses, he becomes more and more aware that his trip is more about himself.

Like a brilliant psychological detective vel, this book tells its stories in fascinating detail while raising fundamental questions about psychotherapy.

After thirty-five years in practice, prominent New York psychotherapist and author Robert Akeret found himself in the thrall of a single question: Did therapy make a real difference in his patients lives?

So, on a sunny morning in April, Dr. Akeret got in his van and set off to visit his most memorable former patients--a journey "in search of story endings." And what remarkable stories they are... Naomi, an abused young Jewish girl from the Bronx who transforms herself into a Spanish flamenco dancer named Isabella--what is she like now, in her mid-fifties? What about Charles, who fell madly in love with a circus polar bear? Had he been able to resist his fatal psychosexual attraction? What of Sasha, the dashing, prize-winning French novelist with writers block and a penchant for exploiting women? In the end, did his art prevail or his life? And what became of Mary--did she ever "murder" again? Like a brilliant psychological detective novel, this book tells its stories in fascinating detail while raising fundamental questions about psychotherapy.

I really like this book and obviously I had to buy this for my psychology class, however the book itself was very interesting. The book also came in nice and it wasn't in ruins or anything. Its worth the money since its cheap.

I have done therapy myself for many years and I really enjoyed reading Akeret's book. Before I knew it, I had finished the book, wishing for more. When I first went into this line of work, my supervisor said to me that people are funnier than a barrel full of monkeys. People never cease to amaze me. Seeing the tremendous variation in personalities and getting a look at what made them the way they are leads to one becoming much more tolerant of others and also much more tolerant of one's own idiosyncracies. But first and foremost this book was very entertaining without being fantasy. (I'm the type who doesn't like fantasy because I just keep saying to myself "oh, c'mon!") A man falling in love with a polar bear? but he explained how it could happen. And people who think thoughts can kill - Mary in the book. Read the book. You'll be glad you did.

I purchased this book for a psychology class I was taking m it's both well written and interesting. Its one of the first books that I've liked though I've been forced to buy it for a class. It's a great read.

I found myself recently telling somebody about a particular story from this book--which I read years ago when it first came out. The "polar bear" story has stuck with me for YEARS...so revealing about how our environment as children shapes our psycology! (All the stories in this book are for GREAT for party conversation!)...I just went back into therapy, and decided to pick it up again to read--and I forgot how intriguing each story was! This book not only follows up on the "endings" of his patients...it's also kind of a travel-questlike tale. A quick, easy read, but NOT lacking in content whatsoever!

I have an autographed copy from many years ago, BUT this was a gift for a friend. She too adored the read.

Very interesting book. It kept my attention and I couldn't put it down. It's a quick read and the personal tales are riveting. It was fascinating to see how some people's lives were helped significantly by therapy and how others' lives were still mired in tragic pain. I deduct one star for lack of literary artistic merit, since it could've been better written, but it's still well worth the read!

Good
My professor for Abnormal Psychology assigned this book for class. Once I started reading it, I could not stop. I found the cases in there inspiring and intriguing to say the least. I'm so glad Akeret took the time to write down his memories. I liked hearing about how he interacted with the patients and learned what made him a good psychologist, what made his patients come back to him.
