Excellent review of this and three other books dealing with the crisis in psychiatry in the NYRB Part 1: http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/2011/jun/23/epidemic-mental-illness-why/Part 2: http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/2011/jul/14/illusions-of-psychiatry/
I don't want or need to read a book about the wonders of talk therapy. In my considered opinion, the idea that listening to what people say will tell you anything about how their brain is working is just as strange as checking the color of someone's blood to see how their heart is working.
