Book review: Critical Psychiatry Textbook

In my book, I describe what is wrong with the psychiatry textbooks used by students of medicine, psychology and psychiatry. Much of what is claimed amounts to scientific dishonesty. I conclude that biological psychiatry has not led to anything of use, and that psychiatry as a medical specialty is so harmful that it should be disbanded.

In a book review that just came out in the journal Psychosis, Tom Federn, licensed clinical social worker from New York, notes how shocked he became when he read my book. He feels ashamed to be part of a profession involving the gross mistreatment of so-called psychiatric patients. His book review is here.
