Mad in America
Bad Science, Bad Medicine,
and the Enduring Mistreatment of the Mentally Ill
Reviewed by Mira de Vries
Mad in America describes psychiatry not only in America
but in all wealthy countries.
The author, an investigative medical journalist, has written a
well-researched book exposing the truth behind psychiatric practice and
its modern sponsor, the pharmaceutical industry. Wisely, he does not
dabble in the debate about the existence of mental illness, but rather,
demonstrates that whether or not it truly exists, psychiatric
treatments are catastrophic for their victims.
Whitaker’s straightforward writing style makes this excellent book
suitable also for readers for whom English is a second language.
I’m not going to go into detail, because I want you to read it
yourself. If you prefer to read more about this book anyway, check out
the reviews of it on the Amazon web site and elsewhere on the web.
