Publisher's Summary

[Contains mature themes] Free for a limited time. Step into iconic relationship therapist Esther Perel's office and listen as 10 anonymous couples in search of insight bare the raw, intimate, and profound details of their story. From infidelity to sexlessness to loss, it’s a space for people to be heard and understood. It’s also a place for us to listen and feel empowered in our own relationships. So…where should we begin?

About Esther:

Esther Perel is recognized as one of today’s most insightful and provocative voices on personal and professional relationships. A celebrated psychotherapist who has helmed a private practice in New York City since 1983, she has over three decades of experience navigating the intricacies of love and desire.

A Note from Esther:

Too often couples live like isolated islands. We think what we’re experiencing in our own relationship is unique to us, and we don’t know that our neighbors and friends are experiencing the same longings, laments, deprivations, and disillusionments in their own lives.

There is no school for relationships, no place for us to learn the tools for rebuilding and repair, to learn to straddle the many contradictions that roil in all of us. Where Should We Begin? Is a way for me to create meaningful, deep, and open conversations. As you listen to these intimate, unscripted sessions between real-life couples, I think you will find the language you’ve been looking for to have conversations with the people in your own life.

Listen to the entire series for free through mid-August at audible.com/esther.

Come on...$3.99 for a one minute introduction...

Would you try another book from Esther Perel and/or the narrator?

I am a fan of Esther Perel- but charging $3.99 for her introduction to the series is ridiculous. I want my $ back.

What could Esther Perel have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It's 60 seconds long

How could the performance have been better?

IT's fine

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Again, I really admire Perel. This review is actually about Audible's audacity...

Love Esther, but...

...this is just an extended ad for the series. It is mis-represented as a "prologue".

Prologue is a misrepresentation

If you could sum up the Prologue in three words, what would they be?
Not a prologue.

Would you listen to Esther again? Why?
Yes, if it's actually Esther giving us a full introduction of her series.

What was the most compelling aspect of this episode?
Marketing?

Any additional comments?
External producers are great, but with varying results.

Very personal

This introduction lets me know that very private things between couples is shared and I don't feel this is anyone's business but theirs. I will not read this one.
