Jennifer Miller, an Emmy-nominated TV writer, was a highly functioning member of the Hollywood scene who had everything going for her: great contacts, great work, and the promise of an even greater future.
But what Jennifer did not have was a happy life, or even the ability to understand what The Book - Spearmint - My Missing Days meant. A single woman who did not know what it was like to have a love relationship, she was haunted by a deepening despair. She toyed with therapy, but Jennifer, the daughter of a shrink, was convinced that she was beyond help.
Then she met Dr. David Cohen, and discovered something worse than depression. Believing she had finally found someone to trust completely, Jennifer allowed herself to get sucked into Dr.
What followed is a chilling tale of fraudulent therapy that is enthralling and horrifying from its skillful beginning to its shocking conclusion. Get A Copy. Paperbackpages.

What an incredible journey into the effects of psychotherapy with Dr. David Cohen. Miss Miller writes very simply about her experience in search for a therapist The Book - Spearmint - My Missing Days turned into the "family" she had always wanted as a child, as an adult, and as a human being.
At what price did that "family" come at? Jennifer Miller is perfect example of cognitive dissonance theory, in conflict with the basic theory of self-concept. You can see the inner conflict Jennifer has with Dr. Cohen, she wanted to have What an incredible journey into the effects of psychotherapy with Dr. Cohen, she wanted to have faith in him, she wanted to count on him, and she wanted her spirit back which in turn made her ignore her own instincts, her gut feelings and her unsettled feelings about Dr.
I read this book in two sittings. I was completely drawn into Jennifer's loneliness, her vulnerability, sadness, desolation, The Book - Spearmint - My Missing Days mostly her depression at her sense of self. I was angry at the disregard her parents had for her, as a child, as an adult. I wanted to cry for her when she couldn't cry for herself. Through therapy Jennifer started painting and in the description of her paintings you can feel the cleansing it gave her.
I'm now quite curious to see them. I wonder how Jennifer is doing now? The last page of the book has an editor's note dated Augustwhat has happened since? I'm curious and wondering and worrying about Jennifer. She IS a warrior, so she must be well. I would love to see a follow-up or part two - when she is no longer "missing".
I would get so mad reading this book and how this woman fell for this man's lies. I suppose that anyone in that position would believe someone who was supposed to be your therapist It goes to show that you can't trust everyone Especially if you have low self-esteem and have a need to feel accepted.

Seems like if this was true there'd be a 48 Hours or Dateline episode. Feb 16, Erin rated it really liked it Shelves: biography-memoirnonfiction. Often I'll read a book like this and immediately think, "Good Lord, what a moron," and then it immediately falls from my mind. I don't know whether you can chalk it up to Miller's excellent writing or David Cohen's powers of manipulation or both, but this time I think I thought, "Good Lord, what a moron, but, you know, I could see how a certain type of person, in a certain situation Interested in both self-examination and suspense?
Here's a good one for you, and it's an incredibly quick read I know all this seems very vague, but there's simply too much to give away in a longer review. Nov 29, Sara Schreck rated it did not like it Shelves: girls-night-out-book-club.

I was expecting something different than where it was going and it moved too slow for me. The topic was The Book - Spearmint - My Missing Days and you can see how Sun Dial - Processed For DNA (Anthology 1990-2010) got to the point where the therapist is believable. He helped her yet was still a fraud. I chose to stop reading this book which I rarely do because are too many books I want to read over this one.
Aug 07, Gaurav rated it liked it. Good for a read. May 28, Aly Peeler rated it really liked it. Definitely the most wild story I've ever come across. Aug 30, Eesha Acharya rated it it was ok. Very very annoying. I mean seriously, she could have at least met a lady.
And wanting to get money out of the way? What a doctor if we can even call him that!! I still can't imagine someone can be so gullible to fall for something like that! It is a Hindi word. Get your facts Annoying.
Get your facts right! Mar 30, Irene rated it really liked it. A cautionary tale that poses interesting questions. The author enters therapy to deal with issues of isolation, trust and intimacy. The therapist is a con artist who gains her complete trust, strips her of thousands of dollars, then mysteriously dies. The irony is that the whole horrific experience has the desired effect of making her more open, self-accepting and willing to show vulnerability.
Extremely well written and hard to put down. May 11, Margaret rated it did not like it Shelves: dnf.
