Mad in America

Bad Science, Bad Medicine,
and the Enduring Mistreatment of the Mentally Ill

by
Robert Whitaker
2002

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.
