    We are all storytellers – we make stories to make sense of our lives. But it is not enough to tell tales. There must be someone to listen. In his work as a practising psychoanalyst, Stephen Grosz has spent the last twenty-five years uncovering the hidden feelings behind our most baffling behaviour.

    The Examined Life… shares the best literary qualities of Freud’s most persuasive work. It is … an insightful and beautifully written book … a series of slim, piercing chapters that read like a combination of Chekhov and Oliver Sacks. [A] deeply affecting book…”

    … Grosz writes with such artful self-effacement that his cases seem to speak for themselves. […] What makes The Examined Life so fulfilling is the way Grosz moves from case study to essay, from narrative to hypothesis, including the reader in each mental step.

    “An elegant, unfussy writer, [Grosz] compresses years of analysis into short chapters that feel like minimalist, suspenseful detective stories. At the end of each story, a secret is revealed; often, it’s a secret which you’ve also kept.”

    “Engaging, frank, and with many penetrating insights. His short, succinct chapters have both the tension and the satisfaction of miniature detective or mystery stories. . . . A stimulating book.”

    “Brilliant. . . . After reading [Grosz’s] absorbing accounts of his patients’ journeys you might feel that The Examined Lifeought to be given out free at birth.”

    “[A] gem…. While you could devour the whole thing in an afternoon, there’s much to digest about the way we tell ourselves stories, and about how the way we narrate our own lives winds up shaping what they become.”

    “Grosz tells stories in spare, gentle prose — his compassion for his patients is palpable, and constant, on these pages — the result is a sense of shared humanity, understanding and even hope.”

    “Packed with insights on everyday life… An inspirational pick that will find its way not only into psychology collections, but into the hearts and lives of everyday readers.”

    The Examined Life is a joy from start to finish. I can’t think of a reader who wouldn’t benefit from the insights Stephen Grosz presents.”
