Overall, I enjoyed and would recommend this book, but was a bit off put by the too personal perspectives and constant bashing of the pharmaceutical profession (disclosure: I work in this industry but also have personal experience with severe mental ‘variation’.).
I agree with many of the authors perspectives, including the potential value of holistic and non-traditional therapies, but hope the economic bias inherent in our profession remains a minor and manageable issue. For those of us involved in bringing ethical, safe and effective treatment options to our patients, their wellbeing is always the highest priority.
I also believe we’ll-conducted research is necessary before recommending any therapy to a patient since all, even psycho-, behavioral and regression, therapies carry risks which need to be understood and weighed against benefits for each individual patient.
Enjoy this journey...
I worked in psych for my career. I found this book highly educational and was a great review of psych meds. though I disagree with the author on Timothy Leary politicizing LSD. I believe it was a political assault by Nixion on the counter culture. Otherwise her courage and lose are clear. An getting an education on psycho active drugs is priceless.
