Product Description

Product Description

Everyone knows that antidepressant drugs are miracles of modern medicine. Professor Irving Kirsch knew this as well as anyone. But, as he discovered during his research, there is a problem with what everyone knows about antidepressant drugs. It isn’t true. This is not a book about alternative medicine and its outlandish claims. This is a book about fantasy and wishful thinking in the heart of clinical medicine, about the seductions of myth, and the final stubbornness of facts. BRAIN SHOTS: The Byte-sized exposé of the pharmaceutical industry

Placebo effects are part of a broader phenomenon – the power of suggestion to change how people feel, how they behave, and even their physiology. &quote;
