Atria. Apr. 2023. 320p. ISBN 9781982170660. $27.99. PSYCH
Psychotherapist and debut author Weber takes readers inside some intimate conversations between a therapist and her clients about the universal desires that drive people, such as to love and be loved. The book also delves into what people do to get their desires. Each chapter explains one desire and the common issues people face by effectively utilizing a client’s story as an example. The author then analyzes the situation through a therapist’s lens. The chapter featuring the story of Tessa’s end-of-life struggle with how she handled love is very moving and relatable. It also teaches a good lesson about giving of oneself. The book includes a table of contents, glossary, and a section with references for further reading. Weber’s personal and intimate tone makes for a relaxing read that provokes introspection.
VERDICT This book is recommended for those interested in self-help, therapy, and exploring one’s deepest desires.
