I’ve just learned of another new book exposing the truth about psychiatric pseudoscience. Cracked, by social anthropologist and psychotherapist James Davies, seems to cover much of the same ground as previous books, but Davies also interviewed several of the leading figures in psychiatry and they appear to have been surprisingly forthcoming.

It’s available now in the UK (here’s some media coverage), but it looks like we in the US can’t get it until August, which is aggravating.* You can read a sample at the Amazon page, though, which I recommend. I look forward to reading it.

*The subtitle in the UK is Why Psychiatry Is Doing More Harm than Good. In the US, it’s The Unhappy Truth about Psychiatry. No idea why.
