Tales from a Traveling Couch: A Psychotherapist Revists His Most Memorable Patients by Robert U. Akeret


The title and subtitle summarize the book’s contents accurately. Dr. Akeret goes out and interviews his five most memorable patients to see how their lives turned out after leaving treatment.


I found this book interesting. There were parts, admittedly, where I was disturbed. My curiousity about the patients kept me going though. This book was also as much about the psychotherapist as his patients. He wants to know if he made a difference.
