Read in August, 2010

A review in the Nation alerted me to this fascinating book by a psychologist plagued by depression himself who researched the history of depression as developed by the medical and drug industry, turns out also a history of medicine/discovery in general. Fine writing, intelligent and witty - probes the evolution, even creation, of an illness to satisfy the drug industry's needs. Questions the whole approach to depression.
