Description - Schopenhauer's Porcupines by Deborah Anna Luepnitz

Each generation of therapists can boast of only a few writers like Deborah Luepnitz, whose sympathy and wit shine through a fine, luminous prose. In Schopenhauer's Porcupines she recounts five true stories from her practice, stories of patients who range from the super-rich to the homeless and who grapple with panic attacks, psychosomatic illness, marital despair, and sexual recklessness. Intimate, original, and triumphantly funny, Schopenhauer's Porcupines goes further than any other book in unveiling the secrets of "how talking helps."

Buy Schopenhauer's Porcupines by Deborah Anna Luepnitz from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
