"Let me tell you" by Jorge Bucay

I am reading "Let me tell you" by Jorge Bucay at the moment. It is book full of short stories with a symbolic meaning. The book is built like a converation between a client and a therapist and instead of answering the client's questions directly the therapist tells him a story that illustrates the topic that they are talking about. I think that it book is really interesting and I enjoy reading the stories. Sometimes it is quite easy to understand the symbolic meaning of the stories and sometimes I have to think about the stories for a while before I am able to understand the message in the stories. I don't know much about the author. I only know that he is a psychoterapist from Argentina. He has written several books, but only one of them has been translated to my language as far as I can see. I would love to read the rest of his books and I am going to see if I can find the English versions online. Have you read any books by Jorge Bucay? What do you think about his books?

He is an excelent writer. As you said, he is an psychiatrist from Argentina, but he left his profession and started to write books. Most of his books contain symbolic stories. He writes in an easy language so people can understand easily what he wants to transmit. His books are usually about motivation and self-aid. I love his books.

I am happy to hear that you also love his books. Most people from my country have never heard about him, but I was able to find one of his books at the local library. I would love to read the other books as well, but I think that I will have to buy them online because I don't think that they have been translated to my local language. I like his symbolic stories a lot and I think that it is an interesting way to learn something about the topic that he describes.
