There's much to commend this book and the ideas that underpin it. Many mh professionals already work in similar ways and it'd be lovely to see the general paradigm shift proposed. I also think that, whilst I'd go a very long way along this same path I'm conscious that 'not proven' doesn't necessarily mean 'not true' and whilst there is very little evidence for the assumptions underlying most psychiatric disorders there are real issues that won't always respond so easily. We need to be careful not to throw the baby out with the bathwater.
if this book was much shorter its points could be debated. I found the tone sarcastic. he has made some valid points, but they get drowned out with too much detail. and whilst intelligent language is used, backed up with some research, i think the points made could be used to argue both sides of the same coin. in my opinion i had high hopes for this book but ended up giving up on it and not finishing it.
