Product description

Review

Ethan Watters has traveled the world to look at how globalization reaches far beyond economics and into people's very conceptions of what constitutes health and sanity. I find his book provocative, original, and convincing. (Adam Hochschild, author of Bury the Chains and King Leopold's Ghost)

...in addition to the cultural flotsam that drives the rest of the world crazy, America is literally exporting its mental illnesses...[Watters] is on to something worth pondering. (Time magazine)

Crazy Like Us is both groundbreaking and shocking... (The Boston Globe)

Crazy Like Us is a blistering and truly original work of reporting and analysis, uncovering America's role in homogenizing how the world defines wellness and healing. (Po Bronson, author of NurtureShock)

"Searing, startling, and utterly unforgettable. Ethan Watters brilliantly surveys the stark interior cost of globalization, from our export of stress disorders to Sri Lanka to our marketing of depression in Japan as 'a cold of the soul.' Crazy Like Us is a grand tour of the new global psyche, distorted and darkened by the export of the American dream." (Jason Roberts, National Book Critics Circle finalist for A Sense of the World)

I couldn't put it down. Crazy Like Us is a fascinating and provocative intellectual travelogue, and Watters is a fearless guide. (Alan Burdick, author of Out of Eden)

Compelling. (OneinFour)

A chilling, cautionary tale. (Time Out)

Book Description

A seering critique of how the US is exporting its mental illnesses.
