5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must-read. Patchy, but ups the stakes ..., 28 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MAD MATTERS (Paperback)
An absolute must-read. Patchy, but ups the stakes as far as understanding the service-user movement as a civil rights movement is concerned. All mental health professionals, carers and service users/survivors should buy a copy and dip in.

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible pourer, 31 July 2010
We've had this kettle for a few months now and if you put more than 2 cups of water in it, it spills water everywhere when pouring. Unless you pour incredibly slowly. This is a real problem with design. You need to keep mopping water up - a real pain. It offsets the nice flat bottom, ability to boil very small amounts of water and quick switch off at boiling point - which we like. Can't afford to change it, but I curse it several times a day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Might give you a heart attack, 10 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Nose Aerobics (Toy)
Nearly died laughing. Best fun to be had with friends and family after a few drinks. Might need resuscitation gear though. Truly crazy, hilarious game(s). Nobody is too old for this, surely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album, 10 Nov. 2009
Not much to say, except that if you like women singing interesting, moving songs in their own voicees this is one to get. Not Particularly a 'fan' of the Unthanks but like this and the previous album as the 'Winterset'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Balanced and fair: don't shoot the messenger, give him a medal, 29 July 2009
This review is from: Doctoring the Mind (Hardcover)
Whether or not psychologists and psychiatrists dispute causes and treatments in mental health (claimed by a previous reviewer), Richard Bentall has written a very fair and balanced appraisal of the evidence. All too often the biological arguments are the only ones given airtime, but Bentall looks at possible psychological and social causes of mental health problems too. Throughout the book he backs his arguments up with evidence which we can all check. He is an honest scientist in the sense that although he is a cognitive behavioural therapist, the book is NOT an extended advert for CBT (claimed by another previous reviewer). He is honest when the evidence shows that other things work just as well and in the end comes out just as much in favour of relationships in therapy as techniques.

Many people are, or have been, touched by mental health difficulties or know someone who is. This book is hopeful and inspiring (whereas many biological psychiatry books are not) and points a way forward for all professionals not completely defeated and stuck in the system. We need more books like this and more scientists like Richard Bentall if we are to build compassionate and evidence-based mental health services.

This is a very readable book. It is the best effort to present a difficult and complicated subject in easy to understand language (without patronising the reader) that I have ever read. I hope it sells by the bucketload for everyone's sake. Everyone should read it.
