Editorial Reviews



"BEYOND BEDLAM'S DOOR is one of the most compelling books I've ever read about the realitiesof mental health treatment. Mark Rubinstein is a seasoned psychiatrist, a thoughtful humanist, and a master storyteller. He has created apage-turning collection of forensic and clinical adventures evocative of The Fifty Minute Hour and the works of Oliver Sacks. This is a bookyou'd see on the shelves of Alex Delaware's library."
--Jonathan Kellerman, bestselling author of the Alex Delaware series

"Nobody knows the fascinating world of forensic psychiatry better than MarkRubinstein, and he has given it to us in a brilliant book that isessential reading for everyone who likes crime fiction. BEYOND BEDLAM'S DOOR is bone-chilling and thrilling, full of smart, strong stories. It belongs on your bookshelf!"
--Linda Fairstein, bestselling author of the Alex Cooper series

"BEYOND BEDLAM'S DOOR is a real page turner. As an internist, I see many patients presenting with physical complaintswho have undiagnosed emotional problems. These stories are important for all physicians to understand and use in practice to care for the wholepatient. Dr. Rubinstein shows us firsthand his skills at listening andinvestigating beyond the obvious. He is a master storyteller."
--Kimberly Simons Patterson, MD, Exempla Good Samaritan Hospital, Lafayette,Colorado Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine, University ofColorado School of Medicine

"These fascinating true storiesof discovery in psychiatric practice and court settings are compelling,dramatic, and often stranger than fiction. They are true page-turners--I couldn't stop reading! The worlds of The Law and Psychiatry often arean odd match, but Mark Rubinstein masterfully demonstrates his abilityto bridge those worlds through his careful assessments, presented inclear fashion, unfazed by pressures to bend the truth."
--Roger Rahtz,MD, Psychiatrist and Psychoanalyst, New York City

"With Beyond Bedlam's Door, Mark Rubinstein isonce again a master storyteller on the disorders of the mind. Byexploring the love-hate relationship between the law and psychiatry, heproves himself to be an expert in the field of forensic psychiatry. Butthen we should have already known that from The Lovers' Tango."
--Richard C. Simons, MD., Past President, American Psychoanalytic Association

"In Beyond Bedlam's Door, Dr. Rubinstein shows a working psychiatrist who is compassionate and curious, always makinghis patients' welfare his priority, even while negotiating the complexterrain of forensic psychiatry. Very few psychiatrists can communicatethe best of what we do with such humble awe and respect for thecomplexities of the human mind."
--Howard Welsh, MD, Former Director, Psychoanalytic Institute and Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, NYU Langone Medical Center
