Best Self - Mike Bayer
“There is a pervasive belief in society that people can’t change, not really. That is absolutely 100 percent untrue. If people couldn’t change, I’d still be penniless and addicted to drugs. If people couldn’t change, everyone would basically be doomed. I've seen people overcome all odds. People change.
1. Written by Psychotherapist Lori Gottlieb who was used to being the therapist in the room until the script was flipped and she went through a crisis that led to her being the recipient of therapy.
2. Instead of being written in the typical fashion of a self help book, it’s written as a memoir.
3. She shares her experience as both the therapist and the client, with dashes of humour in between to lighten things up.
