The Angry Therapist: A No BS Guide to Finding and Living Your Own Truth Read Online Free - Tackling relationships, career, and family issues, John Kim, LMFT, thinks of himself as a life-style designer, not a therapist. His radical new approach, that he sometimes calls self-help in a shot glass is easy, real, and to the point. He helps people make changes to their lives so that personal growth happens organically, just by living.
Let s face it, therapy is a luxury. Few of us have the time or money to devote to going to an office every week. With anecdotes illustrating principles in action (in relatable and sometimes irreverent fashion) and stand-alone practices and exercises, Kim gives readers the tools and directions to focus on what's right with them instead of what's wrong.
When John Kim was going through the end of a relationship, he began blogging as The Angry Therapist, documenting his personal journey post-divorce. Traditional therapists avoid transparency, but Kim preferred the language of "me too" as opposed to "you should." He blogged about his own shortcomings, revelations, views on relationships, and the world. He spoke a different therapeutic language open, raw, and at times subversive and people responded. The Angry Therapist blog, that inspired this book, has been featured in The Atlantic Monthly and on NPR."

The description of this book appealed to me a lot - “A no BS guide to finding and living your own truth”. There is nothing else for me to add to that description. This book is all that and more.
While reading the book, the major thing that endeared me to John was his transparency and openness abou...

An interesting new version of therapy and self-help book. I have never read the blog where this book originates, but I'm going to do it as soon as possible because as a psychotherapist myself, I think that there is no therapy that works for everybody without constant adjusting, so it's fine to ge...

I won this on a Goodreads giveaway and was amused by the concept. I wasn't familiar with John Kim prior to getting this book but found his approach to be refreshing after years of reading dry, ineffective self help books. He makes it sound like a memoir at times, as he includes his own journey th...

I liked the premise of this being a "No BS Guide", an innovative approach to the traditional style of therapy. It promised to be real, to the point and easy. It certainly delivered on those aspects.
Following his divorce, former screenwriter turned therapist John Kim started blogging as 'The Angry...

Aside from some interesting metaphors, there wasn't really anything new here. (Caveat: I'm a therapist.) This might be a good book for someone who really hasn't done the whole introspection thing at all. Otherwise it's very basic stuff, dressed up in a vaguely CrossFit-ish jargon (not surprising,...

I picked it up for its provocative title - and the unorthodox approach to therapy which it suggested - and was not disappointed. It was not particularly ground-breaking in its insights, but it didn't have to be; the value it offered was in its particular approach, which was raw, authentic, and en...

This was a really good book...eye-opening in many ways. But something about the presentation made it much more difficult to process and internalize compared to his previous books. Maybe because there was so much jammed into such a short book...
