This could be a very good book, and quite accurate, if the writer (and narrator) weren't so dramatic. Greenberg clearly has an axe to grind, so his approach is very slanted. Most clinicians (I am one) know there are many many flaws in DSM IV and 5; we work around it. But Greenberg takes it too literally. There are some issues ("diagnosis" needed for insurance, drug companies exploitation) but in general, i day-to-day clinical practice, DSM is not a "bible" nor a main ingredient.
As a result, Greenberg intends an anti-psychiatry screen rather than a balanced critique of DSM, and the profession. Its not fair, nor accurate; it is a one-sided approach.

Amazing. Inspiring. Earth shattering. Mind altering. Perspective breaking information that can literally have you at the edge of your seat both begging for more and asking to be done with it. This book touched me in a truly hard place. I am a direct descendent of Robert spitter. But everything in this book is 100% right. And the perspective itself I think is infallible. This book if in enough people's hands. Can change the world. Will it? I don't know. I can only speak from my experience as I prepare myself to read and listen again. To be captivated by experience and moved by the only thing that should move this world, truth!!!
