5.0 out of 5 stars An insightful, engaging and accessible read, 1 April 2003
This review is from: From The Edge Of The Couch (Paperback)
I find this book to be a very insightful read. It certainly does a splendid job, bringing psychiatry to the mainstream. Books on this subject that are fit for general readership are rare and Raj Persaud writes in a manner that is very accessible and appealing. I think this book serves a very important function in ensuring that people are drawn to explore, read and be curious on a subject that is pivotal to our lives. After all, staying on top of things is of the essence. The counter-influences of culture, myth and taboos are also generously explored vis-a-vis medical conditions; making it a holistic assessment that is well researched and articulated. The book may appear considerable due largely to the narrative style of writing adopted by the author. No complaints on this front, as the narrative style makes it so much less forbidding to peruse through and enjoyable to a lay reader. Certainly one of the more interesting and enriching books I've picked up this year.
