PRAISE FOR BEYOND BEDLAM'S DOOR
"BEYOND BEDLAM'S DOOR is one of the most compelling books I've ever read about the realities of mental health treatment. Mark Rubinstein is a seasoned psychiatrist, a thoughtful humanist, and a master storyteller. He has created a page-turning collection of forensic and clinical adventures evocative of The Fifty Minute Hour and the works of Oliver Sacks. This is a book you'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 Mark Rubinstein, and he has given it to us in a brilliant book that is essential 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 complaints who have undiagnosed emotional problems. These stories are important for all physicians to understand and use in practice to care for the whole patient. Dr. Rubinstein shows us firsthand his skills at listening and investigating beyond the obvious. He is a master storyteller."
--Kimberly Simons Patterson, MD, Exempla Good Samaritan Hospital, Lafayette, Colorado Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of Colorado School of Medicine
"These fascinating true stories of 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 are an odd match, but Mark Rubinstein masterfully demonstrates his ability to bridge those worlds through his careful assessments, presented in clear fashion, unfazed by pressures to bend the truth."
--Roger Rahtz,MD, Psychiatrist and Psychoanalyst, New York City
"With Beyond Bedlam's Door, Mark Rubinstein is once again a master storyteller on the disorders of the mind. By exploring the love-hate relationship between the law and psychiatry, he proves himself to be an expert in the field of forensic psychiatry. But then we should have already known that from The Lovers' Tango."
--Richard C. Simons, MD., Past President, American Psychoanalytic Association
"Truth is stranger than fiction" vividly and compassionately comes to life in Dr. Rubinstein's Beyond Bedlam's Door Twenty-one page-turning stories introduce us to the compelling intersection of mental illness, legal twists, and ethical dilemmas."
--Andrea R. Polans, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist, former Clinical Instructor, SUNY Downstate Medical Center
"Beyond Bedlams Door has a range of clinical cases told by a gifted psychiatrist with remarkable story telling ability. The stories are told with the utmost clarity and honesty."
--Warren Tanenbaum, MD, Psychiatrist and Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry emeritus, State University of New York, Downstate Medical Center
"Beyond Bedlam's Door offers an intriguing glimpse into a psychiatrist's world. Dr. Rubinstein is a skilled story teller and his recollections of provocative and challenging clinical and forensic cases make for a highly enjoyable and fascinating read for psychiatrist and patient alike."
--Donna Sutter, M.D., M.P.H., Psychiatrist and former Clinical Assistant Professor, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas
"In Beyond Bedlam's Door, Dr. Rubinstein shows a working psychiatrist who is compassionate and curious, always making his patients' welfare his priority, even while negotiating the complex terrain of forensic psychiatry. Very few psychiatrists can communicate the best of what we do with such humble awe and respect for the complexities of the human mind."
--Howard Welsh, MD, Former Director, Psychoanalytic Institute and Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, NYU Langone Medical Center
"Mark Rubinstein's intriguing book, Beyond Bedlam's Door, explores the gritty truths about psychiatric practice. Rubinstein accomplishes an amazing feat - intertwining stories from practice and the courtroom that are simultaneously bursting with resiliency, sordidness, and hope!"
--Helen M. Farrell, MD, Psychiatrist & Forensic Psychiatrist, Harvard Medical School, Instructor, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Psychiatrist
