Like Love's Executioner and Yalom's other writings, Creatures of a Day lays bare the necessary task we each face every day: to make our own lives meaningful.

A book of rich experience, wonderfully narrated
If you could sum up Creatures of a Day, and Other Tales of Psychotherapy in three words, what would they be?
Irvin Yalom is a well-respected psychiatrist and psychotherapist who is well on in years. In this book, he shares some of his most moving therapy encounters, bringing us right into the room. He is warm, human, and without arrogance in these sessions and shows considerable respect and professional affection. Traber Burns is a wonderful narrator for Irvin Yalom. He does a superb job of capturing Yalom's voice, inflection and emotions -- from calm empathy to surprise. Being an account of therapy sessions the book consists largely of conversations, and Traber captures the different personalities or moods of each of the speakers -- therapist and the different patients -- so that you're never wondering who is talking, even if you've just restarted the recording.
