What People are Saying About Esther

“Esther Perel is a fearless writer and thinker who will challenge your views about sex in a radical and fundamental way.”
—Harriet Lerner, PhD, author of Dance of Anger

“Perel says the kind of things that are so contrary to popular wisdom, they actually sound blasphemous—and yet, at precisely the same moment that you’re being shocked by her, you’re also acknowledging the validity of her ideas. Perel’s ideas are…instantly familiar because they resonate deeply. It’s all rather terrifying in its intuitiveness and its pure rightness.”
—The Observer
