I really wanted to like this book. But Gottlieb spends too much time sharing session information about her client, John, who refers to everyone as "idiots." I was much more interested in the parts where she discusses her own therapy and her sessions with the cancer patient, but I fail to understand other readers'/listeners' enthusiasm for the "story."
