I am teetering between a high 3 and low 4 for the rating of this. I really enjoyed Christie’s writing, and finished the book over the course of just 3 days. But I was frustrated to see that the conclusion to a woman’s 275-page struggle to find self-love, self-trust, and strength in the discomfort of life was.... a man. Highly recommend this for book discussions. ( )

I loved this book despite having severe reservations about the methods of this therapist. It seemed to work for Tate, whose goal, unfortunately, seemed to be finding a good husband. I hope her marriage lasts - I came to like and empathize with her despite her willingness to go along with the crazy radical honesty policy of the therapist.

I was horrified, however, first that the therapist agreed to have himself and his groups revealed to the world in this book; second, that his policies insist that experiences between members of different (or the same) groups be shared with with the respective groups; and third, that he seemed to be quite controlling of Tate's life, and most likely others' as well.

Boundaries. In my experience one goes to therapy to learn about them. not how to violate them. ( )

As someone who has had therapy as a part of my life for as long as I can remember, I have always been fascinated by what it is like for other people. I am so grateful that especially during this last decade mental health and therapy have been normalized so much.

I started attending therapy when I was just a child during my parent's tumultuous and quite painful divorce. While it was something that was monumental in my ability to process many hard encounters and feelings, it was also a very isolating experience, because, in the 90s, NO ONE talked about therapy. I don't think I told my friends I went to therapy even when I was in college in the early 2000s. There was a taboo about it for so long, and in some ways there definitely still is.

Group dives in and gives you a deeply personal look at Christie Tate's experiences with a fairly unconventional style of group therapy Told through memoir style, Tate writes openly and honestly and the balance of humor and heartbreak made this one engrossing from the very beginning.

I loved how Tate shares that therapy of any kind is not a linear path and often things feel harder before they feel easier. This book made me uncomfortable at times due to the lack of ethics (many there are no requirements for confidentiality among members) but it was also a great reminder for me to address my own discomforts about the spectrum of therapy and supports that are available. There isn't a one size fits all answer and Group is a wonderful example of just that.

Books like this are so important and if you loved Good Morning, Monster, or Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, this will be right up your reading alley!

Thank you to Avid Reader Press for a gifted copy in exchange for my honest review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. My full review will be posted on my website, genthebookworm.com, on Group's publication date, October 27th, 2020. ( )

Full of promise, with a newly minted law degree and her whole future ahead of her, Christie Tate was experiencing a crisis. Despite all her advantages, she felt desperate, with suicidal ideation and the looming ghost of a preexisting eating disorder threatening to return. This is where Tate begins her memoir, Group: How One Therapist and a Circle of Strangers Saved My Life. Facing what she perceives as unabating desperation and devastating loneliness, Christie decides to meet with a therapist recommended by a friend. Following an interview, Dr. Rosen invites her to attend a weekly group therapy session to work on her issues. She has some experience with groups due to her experience with a bulimia 12-step program, but still feels apprehensive about Dr. Rosen and his unconventional approach. The book follows the author through a series of catastrophically failed relationships, temper tantrums and bouts of serious instability. Soon Dr. Rosen asks her to add two more groups to her weekly schedule. Many of the fellow group members attend multiple groups and have been involved for many years. The confessional nature of Rosen’s group allows no boundaries, no secrets, and no taboo topics, and the doctor seems to be revered to almost cult-like status by his clients. Every detail of Christie’s sex life is discussed and dissected, including some liaisons with fellow group members. Crosstalk and gossip, inappropriate contact outside of group, and cross-transference seem to be accepted in ways that would likely be considered ethical breaches according to professional standards. It is apparent that Christie unfortunately equates ultimate success with finding a soul mate, disregarding any of her other achievements. Her own portrayal of herself comes across as overly histrionic and self-centered, whining and entitled. Tate’s unremitting inclination toward poor choices and over-dependence on Dr. Rosen (and the others) make it difficult for the reader to truly celebrate the attainment of her goals. She takes pride in the fact that she is still reliant on the Dr. Rosen even ten years later. Her story could be disheartening for those who approach therapy as a credible tool with an endpoint culminating in long-term stability and independence. Group is a brutally honest, deprecatingly humorous, wincingly graphic, and ultimately sad depiction of someone torn between building internal self-esteem and compulsively seeking the approval of others. As such, it is tale that many will recognize—a too-common reflection of the pressures faced by many young people, especially women, today.

Thanks to the author and Avid Reader Press (Simon & Schuster) for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. ( )
