Hi Kathy,

Welcome back!  Thank you for reading my book.  I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts and feelings.  As you might guess, my beliefs about therapy--based upon what my patients have both taught me and confirmed in my 40 years of “practice”—are very different from traditional therapist’s views.  But no spoilers here—let me know what you think!

Hi everybody,

One of my favorite authors, Yuval Noah Harari writes about a theme of my book in his latest book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century.    https://www.amazon.com/Lessons-21st-Century-Yuval-Harari/dp/0525512179/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1N4WOODQ8NYRL&keywords=21+lessons+for+21st+century&qid=1563054756&s=gateway&sprefix=21+Less%2Caps%2C138&sr=8-1

“Truth and power can travel together only so far.  Sooner or later they go their separate paths.  If you want power, at some point you will have to spread fictions.  If you want to know the truth about the world, at some point you will have to renounce power. “

Fortunately, I learned this early in my career, hence my decision to leave the Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital system and work/practice from the “therapy underground.”

While I don't agree with everything he writes, all three Harari’s books are well worth a read!
