About this title


Dr Ruth Westheimer is everyone's favourite sex therapist. All in a Lifetime is the memoir of her journey from the horrors of war to the fulfillment of the American dream. The book is as warm, humorous, and candid as Dr Ruth herself.

From Publishers Weekly:

This autobiography by the tiny, energetic TV and radio personality "Dr. Ruth" is jam-packed with fascinating details about her remarkable life, both before and after she became America's most popular sex therapist. The book starts in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1939, when as a 10-year-old she boarded a "kinder transport" train for Switzerland with dozens of other German-Jewish children, never to see her parents again. Karola Siegal spent World War II in a Swiss-Jewish children's home and, at 16, emigrated to Israel, where she traded her "too German" first name for her middle name, Ruth, and began a quest for an education that led her to the Sorbonne and to New York, where she eventually received a doctorate from Columbia University Teachers College and a certificate as a psychosexual therapist from Cornell. Not to worry, Dr. Ruth is as open about her own life as she is in giving advice to others, and she candidly discusses her own sexual awakenings, her three marriages, her two children and her delight in her media career in this engaging book.
