Duration: 6 hours 42 minutes
In his long career, eminent psychotherapist and author Irvin Yalom has pressed his patients and readers to grapple with life’s two greatest challenges: that we all must die, and that each of us is responsible for leading a life worth living. In Creatures of a Day, he and his patients confront the difficulty of these challenges. Although these people have come to Yalom seeking relief, recognition, or meaning, they discover that such things are rarely found in the places where we think to look.
Like Love’s Executioner and Yalom’s other writings, Creatures of a Day lays bare the necessary task we each face every day: to make our own lives meaningful.
“Poignant and beautiful insights from a wise therapist looking back on a career, a therapist who happens to be a writer I greatly admire—Creatures of a Day is just what the doctor ordered!”—Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for Stone
