Customer Review

on 5 July 2013
Cracked opens the lid on the closed world of psychiatry and lets us take a look inside. What we find may well shock the reader. Drug trial data being buried in order to make drugs appear to be more effective than they really are, drug companies exploiting peer review publications, doctors taking large sums of money from big pharma to push drugs that don't work, and spurious claims about the biological causes of mental illness.

None of this is really new. This has been written abut previously, but the author brings together this information in a readable form for non medical professionals.

This is NOT a hatchet job on psychiatry by some scientologist. Here we have a well researched and laid out argument of what is wrong with psychiatry and how we can put it right by basing treatment decisions on the best available evidence. The author does not argue that ALL drug interventions are bad for patients, but that drugs should not be the default treatment choice.
