If at first you don't get it....keep reading.
At first, I was a little disconcerted. It's not that the story wasn't engaging, but I kept wondering how the story was going to connect to a man with porn values and lead into his transformation through psychotherapy 'as the back of the book suggested'. I felt a little frustrated and almost gave up - sorry, I'm being brutally honest. But, I'm very glad I hung in there. Now I see how the author was setting up the reader with the backstory so that the reader could understand how Jack got to where he was. As a psychotherapist, I found the last two-thirds of the book to be quite engaging. What a unique way to spread the benefits of psychotherapy! The book helped me understand myself better, and allowed me to incorporate Jack's emotional healing into my own. That being said, I had done a lot of my own emotional work prior to reading this book, and was fascinated to see how much of Jack's journey mirrored my own. I found myself discussing the book with several of my clients. Just today, one client in particular, jotted the title of the book down. He said he would go right out to Barnes and Noble to order it. He is someone who grew up with deficits in the emotional intimacy department, and is wondering why he picked the partner he did. I will gladly pass this book on to my colleagues and future clients, and wish Dr. Yale great success. Perhaps, some nervous soul, who would not otherwise consider therapy, will pick up your novel and find some direction. Lucille Zimmerman, M.A. Littleton, COWas this review helpful?
