Product Details

Praise

“Thoughtful and deeply compassionate . . . a fluid meditation on the limits of medicine.” —Los Angeles Times

“Thought-provoking…Dr. Montross, an award-winning poet before attending medical school, is passionate about her work and her patients’ plight…She addresses these issues with intelligence; and by deftly intertwining her patients’ stories with historical facts, current research and ethical quandaries, she presents a moving and nuanced picture of the psychiatric patient and doctor relationship, and a riveting and thought-provoking look at mental health care.”—Pauline W. Chen, M.D., The New York Times  

“As good an account of the labyrinth of mental health care as you’re likely to read.” —The Daily Beast

“Montross explores the practical, emotional, and philosophical challenges of working with patients whose illnesses of the mind are often intractable and deeply disturbing.” —The New Yorker

“A sympathetic portrait of seriously ill patients that could guide future practitioners on the art of helping, if not always healing, the sick.”—Kirkus

“…[Montross’s] intriguing analysis is anchored by the humble and empathetic voice of a psychiatrist working in a field wherein “every diagnosis is an act of faith.””—Publisher’s Weekly
