Committed: Dispatches from a Psychiatrist in Training; Adam Stern, MD
Mariner Books - July 2021
"I have a recurring dream in which I look down and notice for the first time that I'm soaring above the earth. I'm exhilarated but also filled with fear. I don't know how I made it off the ground, and the act of looking down seems to cause me to lose whatever momentum it was that propelled my upward. I need to figure out how to keep moving before gravity pulls me back to earth, ending in a terrible crash. Sometimes I awaken just as I begin to fall, and other times the dream ends with my discovery of an unexpected solution. The version that gives me the most comfort is when I look to one side or the other and notice that I'm not alone. In those moments, when I see someone floating right next to me, my fear still exists, but its more surmountable. Maybe we can figure this out together.
After reading far too many thrillers, I felt like I needed to try something different so I chose this memoir. What do you think - read more or pass?
