How could the so-called caring professions ostensibly dedicated to student welfare have collapsed so completely in the face of pressure from a particularly hurtful and wanton cultural fashion? This is surely one of the most important questions of our age, and it underlies this generous, tender, lively, angry bookwritten by a therapist who has fought her way through the dangerous pieties of her profession and whose newfound hope is everybody's hope as well. -- Midge Decter, author of Liberal Parents, Radical Children
This book is a thunderous call for a truly honest discussion in society, but more importantly, between college-bound students and their parents. It is one of the few books I have read that can be a light on the path to health for our society that is, in certain areas, the university in particular, very sick. It is an absolute must read. -- Joe S. McIlhaney, M.D.
This is a punch-in-the-gut powerhouse of a book by a very brave clinician. The message is provocative and profound. . . . I wish others had the guts to speak out in a similar fashion. -- Cal Colarusso, M.D., Training and Supervising Analyst, San Diego Psychoanalytic Institute
