Product description


'A series of very full interviews by a highly informed interviewer.' -- New York Review of Books

'Mad to be Normal is a splendid contribution to the growing literature on the maverick Scottish psychoanalyst. For those unacquainted with Laing's life and times, this material is invaluable. Those who take a professional interest in it, also have much to learn.' -- Psychoanalytic Review

'This is presumably the closest a reader will ever get to Laing, the nearest to an autobiography. Read this book. It is how I imagine it must have been to talk to Ronnie Laing. It is that vital and that enlightening.' -- Mark Hinchcliffe, Asylum


Presents the psychiatrist and psychoanalyst R.D. Laing's own words about his life and work - which was part of an on-going process concerned with the routine care of those disturbed in mind.
