Josef Breuer, one of the founding fathers of psychoanalysis, is at the height of his career. Friedrich Nietzsche, Europe’s greatest philosopher, is on the brink of suicidal despair, unable to ahen a cure for the headaches and other ailments that plague him.

Only through facing his own inner demons can the gifted healer begin to help his patient. In When Nietzsche WeptIrvin Yalom blends fact and fiction, atmosphere and suspense to unfold an unforgettable story about the redemptive power of friendship. A book which relieves oneself from memories of love betrayals, past memories and fears of death.

A novel combining Philosophy, Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. I have thoroughly enjoyed the “When Nietzsche Wept” audiobook, and found both the story as well as the performance excellent! A great “teaching novel” by Irvin Yalom, addressing big life questions that are very recognizable.


Nice blend of philosophy and psychotherapy, and an engaging plot where the lines between therapist and patient get very blurry. I got a much better insight into the works of Nietzsche through this book, he truly seems to be one of the founding fathers of “self-actualization”.

Would you consider the audio edition of When Nietzsche Wept to be better than the print version? I have had the printed version for some time, as I am a therapist, but after several failed starts at reading it, I could not keep my attention on it.

When I discovered it was an audiobook, I wanted to give it another try, as I have always preferred storytelling to reading the story myself. It was definitely worth the retry!

What other book might you compare When Nietzsche Wept to and why? I don’t recall any books from my past readings that I would find comparable to this one. Paul’s voice and narrating style just drew me in to where I found myself not wanting to turn it off when I had yaloom get out of my car to go to my office. I have heard Irvin Yalom yalo, on many occasions, and Paul’s voice sounded like Dr. Yalom was reading the story to me. Paul’s voice was smooth, clear, and very in tune with the emotions and meanings of the story parts.

If you could take any character from When Nietzsche Wept out to dinner, who would it be and why? I would probably want to spend nirtzsche with Dr. I would want to talk with him more about how he kept hope alive in himself nietzschee endure the roller coaster ride of Nietzsche’s tragic struggles. I would ask Dr. Brauer to share with me some techniques and tips for working with someone who is that profoundly depressed and spiritually lost wben going crazy myself.

I have had some difficult patients in my own career, and could relate to several of Dr. I would be taking copious notes listening to him.

I have been a long time student of Irvin Yalom’s works on individual and group therapy in the existential and humanistic way of doing therapy. This book was always one on my shelf that was in the “I’ll read it someday” list. Something just got into my head one day to lrvin to the book when I found it was available in audio format, so I thought it might be an interesting story to hear, knowing Dr.

Yalom’s story telling skills and topics. LIstening to the story really filled my mind with such images and ideas that fell right into line beside my own experiences as a therapist working with difficult patients, and I felt validated in how I have been practicing, and I took a lot of notes from the story to use in my own practice.

I have since discovered other books of his on Audible, and intend to listen to all of them as well. I’ll have to thank Dr. Yalom the next time I see him for putting his books on Audible! This book helps connect a lot of ideas between psychoanalysis and its philosophical foundation. I enjoyed the creativity that Yalom used to join many of Nietzsches big ideas and share them in the easier to adapt narrative format.

More philosophy than psychology and yet an extraordinary explanation of Nietzsche and his philosophical relation to Self. Worth reading and rereading and giving it to friends. Best of the Yalom books by far The sophisticated bromance of humanities great thinkers from the s and the influence woman they loved had on them.

This was both engaging and an interesting read. Yalom’s novel storyline brings the historical founders of modern psychoanalysis together in one place and time.
