This review is from: The Emperor's New Drugs: Exploding the Antidepressant Myth (Paperback)
Quite a disturbing book,in its undermining of the 'depression business' and it is a very big business. Very well written demolition job of the chemical imbalance theories. He examines the evidence for anti depressants forensically and finds some worrying signs of science being side tracked by profit. He raises important points about the power of placebo's and unlike many psychologists admits the talking therapies are just as dependant on the placebo effect as the tablets are.Raises a lot of important questions about the mental illness industry and modern evidence based practice.
