Should you leave?
A writer who presents his vast knowledge of psychiatry with the art of a novelist, Peter D. Kramer imagines scenarios in which he addresses a series of advice seekers. Each "session" not only reveals the various styles of giving advice - from Freudian psychoanalytic techniques to Ann Landers's application of conventional values - but probes the complexities of human relationships: How do we choose our partners? How well do we know them? How do mood states affect our assessment of them and theirs of us? When should we work to improve a relationship, and when should we walk away? What does "working on a relationship" entail? Kramer's questions lead to a reconsideration of our culture's norms - and to a suggestion that we may have begun to over-value autonomy and assertiveness at the cost of intimacy and connectedness.

Kramer is typically thought-provoking and challenging. In some ways, it's the anti-self help book....really trying to replicate the processes that unfold in therapy sessions, especially when clients seek advice about "leaving"--i.e., intimacy in general. Kramer's chosen writing style--envisioning each chapter as a session with a protagonist patient--can be frustrating--perhaps as frustrating as a coaching/therapy session itself.
