Library Journal - Library Journal
Not only is ``the world . . . to a large degree crazy,'' but we are now more vulnerable to the ``great craziness'' than ever before. In his latest book, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Franklin marshals sobering statistics to support his conclusion that one-third of us suffer from some form of mental illness, and that much abnormal behavior results from malfunctioning of the chemical systems within our brains. Franklin eloquently describes the molecular structures that control behavior. He shows that it was the discovery of one such structure, the receptor molecule, which ushered in the new molecular psychologya discipline with profound implications in the treatment of mental disorders and in our understanding of self. Franklin's clear, vigorous prose and cogent arguments make this book a model of popular science writing. Luarie Bartolini, Illinois State Museum, Springfield
