Yazdi has translated other psychological works by Yalom too, Honaronline reported. Yalom, 87, an accomplished psychotherapist and nonfiction author, famous for “When Nietzsche Wept,” has made a career in investigating the lives and works of notable psychologists. In the current book, he turns his writing and his therapeutic eye on himself.

This is not simply a man’s life story, Yalom’s reflections on his life and development are an invitation for readers to reflect on the origins of their own selves and the meaning of life.
