I found this to be an okay read and worth a look. It does seem to have a few factual mistakes, not including misspellings of common drugs such as nortriptyline. One mistake is that it states that Effexor is an SSRI. Another is that it states that 'it is during REM sleep that we dream', when in fact we also dream during NREM sleep. Mistakes such as these make me wonder about the validity of the rest of the information. The author is also strongly biased against pharmaceutical drugs, which is fine but it would be better to be a bit more objective in the presentation of the information. On the plus side, the book covers a good deal of ground on alternatives to pharmaceuticals in a concise manner. It's an easy read and the author has a pleasant writing style. It contains a number of graphs and charts that facilitate the presentation of the information. Overall, it is worth reading for the purpose of expanding one's knowledge base in the treatment of depression and other mental illnesses.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
