Product description

Review

"A beautifully written, profoundly important book that is sure to shake up the psychiatric establishment and pharmaceutical industry... This book is long overdue and I hope that people will pay attention. Kudos to Dr. Kirsch!" (David D. Burns M.D., author of Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy)

"Irving Kirsch brilliantly documents a grim scandal of regulatory and clinical failures concerning antidepressants but also holds out hope" (David Healy, author of Let Them Eat Prozac: The Unhealthy Relationship Between the Pharmaceutical Industry and Depression)

"A terrific account of how optimism, greed and scientific incompetence have misled us about the nature of depression and the drugs we throw at it" (Druin Burch, author of Taking the Medicine)

"Wide scope, smooth delivery, and mastery of the data" (www.popularscience.co.uk)

"A fascinating and disturbing book" (Literary Review)

Book Description

A journey of discovery and an exposé of the pharmaceutical industry.
