Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Involving Account of Mental Health Issues, 17 Oct 2013
This review is from: Bad Moves: How decision making goes wrong, and the ethics of smart drugs (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Most people will have noticed that when they're on a high, ideas come faster as mental alertness is enhanced. When an individual is suffering from anxiety or is in a manic state, then 'pressure of thought' comes into play, and creates competing thoughts in an individual's head leading to aloss of clarity.

This important and extremely interesting book describes how a 'normal' individual or mind state functions and how decisions are reached and implemented, then takes a look at how thought processes can become fragmented, disjointed or sluggish when individuals suffers from one of a wide range of mental health issues.

The impact of modern 'smart' drugs on these conditions are examined and explained, leading the way for hopefully even more focussed and efficatious, even 'smarter' drugs in the future.

Strongly recommended not only to the layman, but also to anyone involved in the mental health industry.
