This review is from: Medicines for Mental Health: The Ultimate Guide to Psychiatric Medication (Paperback)
This guy claims to be a bipolar person. He is a member of a sexist Usenet Group "BEEPERS PEEPERS" where he is a manager of the group. The group is known for banishing people who exhibit extreme bipolar condition and who are resistant to psychotropic medications.
The book was originally written under the name "Nom de Plume" by his user name "Nom de Plume." At best, this guy is a quack and the book should be avoided at all costs especially since its predecessor could be found FREE in the Usenet community.
Oh, and by the way "He's a rocket scientists!" Do you want someone who is so brash in describing oneself to be giving you advice on drugs that are being pushed by drug companies OFTEN indifferent to a patients needs and condition?
Go to GOOGLE GROUPS and search for him "Nom de plume" before you buy and decide for yourself!

This 'review' appears to be nothing more than a personal attack, and not a review in any meaningful sense. It also contains a number of factual errors that I, as the author of the book, want to correct.
1) Not that it should matter to anyone either way, but I have never claimed to be a "bipolar person."
2) I am not a manager of the Google Group named "Beepers Peepers," although I am pleased to be a member of the group.
3) My discussion-group pen name is "Nom dePlume," not "Nom de Plume."
4) I have made the full content of the current edition of my book available on my Website, free of charge, not just the previous edition. Interested readers may browse the material online, buy the printed version, or download the Kindle version to their Kindle readers, as they see fit.
I do agree with Mr. Scott on one point, if not for his stated reasons: Just as I've recommended in my book, I invite anyone who is interested, or who needs help with psychiatric medication, to visit groups such as alt.support.depression.medication, and ask questions about the issues that concern them. Many people, including myself, are happy to help.
