Editorial Reviews

Review


"This book provides an excellent discussion and philosophical critique of the use of the term 'mental disorder'...The book is cogent and well written. It is easily accessible and does not presuppose knowledge or education...This book will be useful to the inquiring mind that seeks to understand mental disorder from a wider perspective."--The Psychologist


"Highly recommended."--CHOICE
