When people come to treatment, they will often ask me to recommend books that they might read to assist them in solving the problems that are challenging their lives. They gaze at the books, which line the shelves in my office, possibly expecting that some perfect kernel of wisdom is hidden within one of those tomes (if paperbacks can be tomes).

They search for that one statement, or fact, which absolutely and clearly elucidates their particular problem and explains the exact formula for a quick and enduring fix. “Give me something to read,” they ask. Sometimes I say: “if you could get all of the answers from books, we wouldn’t need therapists!”

At times, however, I do recommend certain books and we will discuss some of them in this forum from time to time.
