"This book will provide consumers with the armor they need to become well informed in the area of 'new psychiatry'" —Susan Dime-Meenan , CBA, Former Executive Director of the National Depressive and Manic Depressive Association

"While other compendia of treatment information exist, this book is unique in giving pations and their families concrete information to use in juding the quality of care—how long it takes for each form of treatment to provide relief, possible side effects, even cues that a psychiatrists's performance is probably not adequate...absolutely essential."
