Editorial Reviews

Review

"Unhinged is a searingly honest and articulate account of modern psychiatry's failure to think outside the box of psychopharmacology in treating patients." (Alison Bass, author of Side Effects: A Prosecutor, a Whistleblower and a Bestselling Antidepressant on Trial,winner of the NASW Science in Society Award for 2009 )

“A psychiatrist looks deeply into the mirror and takes stock of his profession and what it has become. Whether you are a patient, student, trainee, clinician, or “KOL” (key opinion leader”), this frank and insightful book will definitely make you think.” (Erick Turner, M.D., Department of Psychiatry and Center for Ethics in Health Care, Oregon Health & Science University )

"Unhinged provides crucial insights for anyone who cares about the future of Psychiatry. Must reading for psychiatrists and patients alike." (Keith Ablow, MD, author of Living the Truth )

"Terrific book, terrific insights! Daniel Carlat is the kind of psychiatrist we wish we all had." (Manny Alvarez, MD, Senior Managing Health Editor at Fox News Channel )
