After reading "Staring at the Sun", Yalom's masterful description of how he helps patients overcome their fear of death, I expected to be similarly thrilled by his book, "Lying on the Couch". I liked the logic of experiential psychotherapy practiced by the (well named) Ernest. Found the financial misadventures of Marshall, the villainous classical psychoanalyst, unrealistic and out of the spirit of the rest of the story. Still, the book is a pleasure to read like all Yalom's writings.
the plot is a bit predictable with good winning in the end. it gives an informative view of therapists and their actions and thoughts. well worth reading
