Life and Story: Autobiographies for a Narrative Psychology

Lee, D. John (Ed.).

 This is a useful book for both experiencers and researchers who want to write or study EHE autobiographies by psychologists that serve as "a continuation of the development of a narrative psychology" introduced by Theodore Sarbin in 1986. Sarbin contributes the opening chapter, in which he tells the story of how he came to the metaphor that life is a story. The aim of the book is to "review the past and look forward to the future in order to assist others in grasping the present" (p. 4). The bibliography is very useful for locating additional references dealing with the autobiographical approach to meaning and the importance of narrative in uncovering of constructing meaning in our lives.
