Praise

“Readers of this eye-opening book will find their beliefs and assumptions about ‘mental disorders’ forever changed. Dr. Gallon has an axe to grind and he grinds it to a razor-sharp edge. He is scathing in his indictment of the medical model that prevails in psychiatry, which he sees as not only fundamentally flawed, but self-serving. Combining scholarly research with his personal experiences as a clinical psychologist, with fascinating examples and anecdotes, the book is an eminently readable exploration of ‘madness’ in our time.”
—Howard Ehrlichman, PhD, Emeritus Professor of Psychology, Queens College of the City University of New York and coauthor of Personality Psychology: The Science of Individuality
 
“An interesting and important book. The subject, mental disease and disorder, is worthy of careful attention. Gallon beautifully illustrates the differences between taxonomy and typology. The changes in treatment, the consequences to society of those changes, and the advocates of those changes are well laid out. He does not shrink from the responsibility of defining where he stands or what direction we should take.”
—Julius R. Krevans, MD, Emeritus Dean of the Medical School and Emeritus Chancellor, University of California, San Francisco
