The structure of the book is well organized; the headings are clearly defined with supporting data, statistics, and content. The size of font and spacing are excellent ... I appreciate that the paragraphs are not lengthy and made for easy reading.
The book is a worthy reference manual. literally... each line led me to want to read more. more .. faster and faster.. I did not find myself having to ask, what am I reading? What is this author trying to tell me?
Most of chapters are short (7,8,9-are longer chapters), concise, clearly outlined, digestible, revelant, not awkward or overly complicated, and they flow.
Beginning with chapters 4 to 9 Dr. Jackson provides a variety of scientific studies, visual aids, tables, and comparison studies, which substantiate the content of her book.
I appreciate that Dr. Jackson deciphers and explains the comprehensive data for the non-scientific mind in chapters
4 to 9
As a mental health professional, Rethinking Psychiatric Drugs: A Guide for Informed Consent has now equipped me with some vital information to be a more effective clinician.
A hundred thanks you, Dr. Jackson!!!
an Owners Manual for the human brain.
This book goes far beyond "informed consent".
More precisely, this is a "Shop Manual", of the sort normally reserved for the
"priesthood" of technicians who work in the "under the hood" innerds
of todays highly complex marvels.
Because of the deluge of misinformation and disinformation on the human mind
one is faced with in everyday life; it is vital to get the straight story. Anything less
might produce catastrophic consequences. Dr. Jackson's no nonsense approach demystifies
this much-bedeviled topic.
This is not light reading. While her book is a meticulously documented and precise
treatise written by a professional for professionals; Dr. Jackson provides helpful, brief
explanations of the medical terms involved for the lay reader.
This book should be standard equipment for every human being.
Keep it handy in your "glove compartment".
