Throughout the book, the author goes back and forth between interpersonal experience and her career. I wanted to hear more about her role as a Pharm rep, but that's my bias and was my reason for reading the book. If anything, her Pharm rep role was toned down compared to what happens in the industry. And by the author's own volition, the book turned into a cathartic purge of all her experiences with mental illness.
If you or a loved one have taken, or are considering taking a psychotropic medication, I think it's certainly worth a read. I have high respect for the author who was willing to be so personal and also disclose so much, which was certainly a huge risk.
I suppose, in this case, the penance for her deeds is the act of telling her tale and confessing to those who will listen.
