Taking the novelist as an exemplar, Polster models a new frame of mind for the psychotherapist--one wherein he sees healing potential in the fact that people often marvel at the adventures of others but don't notice that their own lives are filled with drama. The author's theme may also provide insights for people who are not psychotherapists. Readers may realize that they live through experiences that, when rightly noticed, are as dramatic as the world of novels. Both the novelist and the therapist invite us to open the covers of our own lives to find the wonders inside. When we do, we move toward the satisfactions of a confirmed existence.
