    Interesting

    A very interesting and somewhat depressing book. So many broken people, patients and physicians alike. What a horror the politics in the health care industry are. Poor patients. Having mental health problems is horrifying and I have to admire the people who genuinely care and are really trying to help people recover. What a daunting task. The differences in the author's year experience and her husband's in a different facility are so poles apart it doesn't seem they are in the same health care field. I enjoy true medical stories told from the docotor's perspective, so was glad I read this, but it is a bit of a hard read.

    Disappointing. Has several main threads--psychology vs. psychia

    Disappointing. Has several main threads--psychology vs. psychiatry, coming of professional age, exposé, workplace/bureaucratic infighting, the cases of her patients--but does not do an adequate job with any of them. Some aspects (her coming of professional age, e.g.) are dealt with better than others, while some are downright desultory (poor hospital vs. adequately funded hospital). Interesting moments, but sometimes flat, sometimes naïve; the book really doesn't come fully to grips with any of the worthy themes she introduces.

    No whining!

    So far this book is an unrelenting whine about the internal politics and petty annoyances of any workplace. I may not be able to finish this book. Nothing with any insight or even slight interest about the patients or her therapeutic work with them,if there was any.
