bookshelves: non-fiction, psychology-psychiatry, biography

In my highschool psychology book, the case of David Reimer was deemed as a success. It was also a supposed clear cut case of nurture over nature. A genetical male raised as a girl after a drunk doctor accidentally cut too deeply during a circumcision. This tragic story told from the view point of David tells a tale of greed and folly in psychiatry. There is a lot to learn from this heart-breaking biography.
