Every body that have a lpve one who suffers from mental illnesses MUST read this book.
Whitaker paints a bleak picture of modern psychiatry. He provides a compelling narrative about the way we treat mental illness throughout the past 200 years or so, focusing mostly on psychiatry's failures. I found the narrative to be one-sided, though, and I advise listeners to seek out other opinions on the topic after finishing this book. He omits some important considerations, such as the narrow definition of schizophrenia used today. Still, I enjoyed it overall and thought it was narrated well.
