During his long and plentiful professional career, Jorge Bucay has always recounted stories not only as a means to teach his patients, but also to reflect with them on common worries and concerns of human beings. This book, one of his most widely read titles, combines many of these in... spiring stories. They are the stories that accompany us and help to shed light on our inner growth. Almost all of them have their own inspiration, but we also find the traditional narratives and stories that have enriched the thinking process and lives of readers. This new, beautifully edited edition is designed not only to re-enchant those who already knew the previous work, but also to conquer new generations of readers.
