THE EXAMINED LIFE How We Lose and Find Ourselves

by | Read by Peter Marinker

Contemporary Culture • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

With a dignified speaking voice that is is both kind and erudite, Peter Marinker sounds like an accessible college professor sharing stories and observations with an old friend. His down-to-earth warmth makes him a wonderful choice to read this type of book. Each of these 31 chapters by a practicing psychoanalyst deals with a thought-provoking topic such as the loss of a family member, lovesickness, or envy of our children. The issues are illustrated by touching stories from the author’s clinical practice or personal life. Marinker lets them show how complex and beautiful one’s inner life can be when, with caring guidance, we escape from life’s relentless business long enough to look at ourselves. This audiobook harkens back to the time when more people worked on understanding themselves through formal psychotherapy. T.W. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2013]
