Stanford psychiatrist Irvin Yalom has practiced in the area of group psychotherapy for over 50 years, and often writes about his personal experiences with his patients. In his new book "Creatures of a Day," he deals with questions of mortality, from his work with terminally ill patients to his own fear of dying. He joins us to talk about his career as a psychotherapist and what he's learned from his patients in the process.
