Irvin D. Yalom has made a career of investigating the lives of others. In this profound memoir, he turns his writing and therapeutic eye on himself.

He opens his story with a nightmare: He is twelve, and riding his bike past the home of an acne-scarred girl. Like he does every morning, he calls out, hoping to befriend her, Hello Measles! But in his dream, the girls father makes Yalom understand that his daily greeting had hurt her. For Yalom, this was the birth of empathy; he would not forget the lesson. As Becoming Myself unfolds, we see the birth of the insightful thinker whose books have been a beacon to so many. This is not simply a mans life story; Yaloms reflections on his life and development are an invitation for us to reflect on the origins of our own selves and the meanings of our lives.

Yalom is an emeritus professor of psychiatry at Stanford University and a psychiatrist in San Francisco. He is the author of many books, including Loves Executioner, The Gift of Therapy and When Nietzsche Wept.
