Madness of Psychiatry is a book for the general reader, which will interest psychiatrists and students. It is written by a psychiatrist with extensive academic, administrative, and clinical experience. It is illustrated with case studies and photographs. It describes the symptoms and syndromes of the severe mental disorders. It explains aspects of mental illness in court, and compulsory admission to hospital. It salutes electroconvulsive therapy and tentatively welcomes transcranial magnetic therapy. It grapples with deinstitutionalization, genius and suicide, and turns a critical eye on post trauma debriefing and recovered memory.
