The wild, autobiographical story of Marty Obler, shrink: his childhood in an extremely poor, dysfunctional family; in a Jewish ghetto in Brownsville, Brooklyn; head of a gang in his youth; fleeing his ghetto world to Israel; getting kicked out of a kibbutz; eventually returning to Brooklyn and storming through Brooklyn College; graduate school, getting his Ph. D.; making his way in his wild fashion in a couple of counseling jobs; and, finally beginning a successful practice as a psychotherapist, in which he details a number of riveting case studies, not the least of which is his own-more of a self-analysis. And the latter, brutally (or ridiculously) honest, is in a class by itself... there is almost nothing out there to compare it to.
