I was half expecting this to be a tirade against the big drug companies and the psychoanalysis culture, which in part it is, but its so much more than that. This is a well researched, very interesting and well constructed book. It reads easily, is well laid out and uses a wide variety of case histories. I was sad to finish it and started reading it again a few days later. I haven't enjoyed a book this much in ages. Well worth purchasing.
