I would highly recommend this book for anyone interested in the fledgling science of psychiatry - flexible, open-minded with the skeptical humility of the true scientist the author, a highly experienced Psychiatrist, discusses many of the complicated and unresolved issues in this area. The bounderies and fashions of diagnosis, the importance of realism and balance in the subject of psychopharmacology and the sad shrinking of psychotherapy options in many modern services. I am a tired. middle aged psychiatrist and after thirty years full-time NHS work realise how little we know and how dangerous it is to imagine otherwise.

I found reading this book to be therapeutic in the way exposure to reality can sometimes be. I remain grateful to the courage of the author for honestly and humanely describing the limitations of our knowledge. There is nothing scarier than arrogance and ignorance combined - he suffers from neither. Many thanks.
