    Become a fly on the wall of a psychologist's and her patients' inner sanctum and end up learning about yourself! Did you ever wonder what goes on in a psychologist's office? How does she keep secrets? Is she ever bored, unsure, afraid, angry, or impatient? Does she confuse one person's story with another or get too emotionally involved? What does she actually do to facilitate change besides saying, What do you mean by that?

    I wasn't sure how to rate the performance, because it isn't a flawless, highly professional reading. But it really works! Ms. Shanken sets out to do exactly as she says...to create an atmosphere as if she and the reader are sitting together in a room, with Ms. Shanken sharing her experiences and thought/feeling process in approaching her work and the people with whom she works. Once she laid out the "characters," it was fun to see them woven back into her memoir, providing perhaps, even greater insight into the inner workings of Ms. Shanken than her patients. I really felt like I knew her by the end, and appreciated her sincerity, integrity and love that seem to be the foundation of her work. Thanks for the opportunity to get a glimpse into the mysteries of talk therapy, and the chance to feel like I had a private audience with the author!
