In this anthology of Irvin Yalom's most influential work to date, readers will experience the diversity of his writings with pieces that range from illustrative case studies, to theoretical models, and, of course, to literature.

Dr. Yalom has written an introductory essay the Reader, new section introductions, and three new essays on narrative. In both his nonfiction and his fiction, Dr. Yalom uses the lens of psychotherapy to explore human nature and shows us that the line between the true and the imagined is not always easy to distinguish. What has driven Dr. Yalom from the beginning of his career is a powerful interest in narrative and it is this passion that ties these selections together. It is possible to come to The Yalom Reader from many different backgrounds and be richly rewarded. Readers of Dr. Yalom's clinical texts will be intrigued by the fictional works; general readers will gain a greater understanding of and appreciation for the practice of psychotherapy.
