From The Critics
"This book is a great read, and not only for mental health professionals. It also has relevance for lawyers, lawmakers, civil planners, and administrators....Asylum: A Mid-Century Madhouse and Its Lessons About Our Mentally Ill Today consists mostly of Dr. Callaway's vivid memoirs: a more or less sequential cornucopia of many vignettes in short chapters only 2 or 3 pages long that are funny, poignant, intensley personal, and sometimes quite sharp-edged but never frivolous or lacking in common-sense perspective."
