Creatures of a Day free pdf "All of us are creatures of a day," wrote Marcus Aurelius, "rememberer and remembered alike." In his long-awaited new collection of stories, renowned psychiatrist Irvin D. Yalom describes his patients' struggles--as well as his own--to come to terms with the two great challenges of existence: how to have a meaningful life, and how to reckon with its inevitable end. In these pages, we meet a nurse, angry and adrift in a morass of misery where she has lost a sonto a world of drugs and crime, and yet who must comfort the more privileged through their own pain- a successful businessman who, in the wake of a suicide, despairs about the gaps and secrets that infect every relationship- a newlyminted psychologist whose study of the human condition damages her treasured memories of a lost friend- and a man whose rejection of philosophy forces even Yalom himself into a crisis of confidence. Their names and stories will lingerlong after the book's last page is turned. Like "Love's Executioner," which established Yalom's preeminence as a storyteller illuminating the drama of existential therapy, "Creatures of a Day" is funny, earthy, and often shocking- it is a radically honest statement about the difficulties of human life, but also a celebration of some of the finest fruits--love, family, friendship--that life can bear. We are all creatures of a day. With Yalom as a guide, we can find in this book the means not just to make our own day bearable, but meaningful--and perhaps even joyful.
