Hi everyone, I've wanted to set up a book club for ages, and so here I am! The first book to be discussed will be the classic 'If you Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him!' by psychotherapist Sheldon B Kopp. In it he discusses his case studies and tracks his own career as a know-all grad to an older, wiser and more humble therapist who, with years of experience, realises he has about as many answers to life, death and the universe as do his patients. It's a great read; we'll have plenty to talk about, believe me. Everyone's welcome but particularly singles over 40. We'll be meeting in a nice pub on Blackrock Main St. I think it serves tea, coffee and good grub til fairly late, so it's not just booze. I'm looking forward to meeting my fellow bookworms.
