"Breggin has written the definitive text for professionals and the public alike who really want to know the hazards, inadequacies and illusions of psychopharmacology. this book will be a foundation for those who specialize in medication-free treatment.
--Kevin F. McCready, PhD, Clinical Director, San Joaquin Psyuchotherapy Center
"This book proves once again that Peter Breggin truly is the 'conscience of American psychiatry.' Breggin shows that the brain-disabling hypothesis of organic psychiatric treatments is overwhelmingly confirmed by clinical experience and the scientific literature. With astounding numbers of elderly, adults, and children on prescribed psychoactive drugs, [this book] should be required reading for all medical interns, practicing physicians, and mental health professionals."
--David Cohen, PhD, Professor of Social Services, University of Montreal
"Once more, Dr. Breggin updates us on the real evidence with respect to the safety and effectiveness of the range of specific psychiatric medications and ECT. This information is needed by all mental health professionals, as well as patients and families, but it is never completely available in textbooks or drug advertising."
--Bertam Karon, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Michigan State University
"Peter Breggin, MD, a scientific-Hippocratic physician, does not for a moment overstate the danger posed by the psychiatric-pharmaceutical cartel."
--Fred A. Baughman, Jr., MD, Fellow, American Academy of Neurology
