Need Something to Read? - Justin Lioi, LCSW - Brooklyn, NY

bookThank you to Jessica Fowler for including me, yet again, in her monthly What Your Therapist is Reading post.  This January, to celebrate the return of the awesome Cumberbatch/Freeman pairing on the BBC’s Sherlock, I reread A Study in Scarlet–the first Sherlock Holmes story, setting the stage for so many great tales. I highly recommend it!

I also love Jessica’s post each month because it gives me so many things to read or reread. I’ve read Raising Cain by Dan Kindlon, PhD & Michael Thompson, PhD which was Angelica Shiels’ pick  and think it’s great for anyone with sons (or a father, for that matter). Scary Close, by Donald Miller, though, is a new one for me so I’m excited to pick that up. (Thanks, John Harrison.)

Any recommendations from you for the new year?
