Mad Men On The Couch

March 16, 2012

In Dr. Stephanie Newman‘s Mad Men On The Couch, the author uses her experience as a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst to examine the mindset of the characters of the award-winning TV show, bringing us new insights into the seemingly glamorous world of Madison Avenue. Named one of Publishers Weekly‘s top 10 performing arts titles of the season, Mad Men On The Couch provides unexpected insight and a unique perspective on the show and the tremendous socio-cultural shifts of the time.

“If you’re a fan of the show, I highly recommend giving Mad Men on the Couch a read.” – Christine Louise Hohlbaum, author of The Power Of Slow

Listen to Stephanie talk about what makes the mad men and women on the show tick during her recent appearance on Radio 720 WGN. Also check out her Washington Post piece What if Mad Men took place in 2012? to see how your favorite character would fare in today’s corporate climate.

Stephanie Newman blogs about Mad Men and other topics for Psychology Today. Find her on Twitter and Facebook, and follow her as she live tweets the upcoming Mad Men season premiere. Mad Men On The Couch is available now from Barnes & Noble,, and your local indie bookstore.
