The Emperor's New Drugs: Exploding the Antidepressant Myth
I don't know what to think, it's hard to believe that the antidepressant drugs basically amount to a $19 billion/yr placebo effect but the evidence he brings is persuasive. It still boggles the mind - and it's hard to get my head around the face that this guy might have been right about antidepressants all along. His explanation of the placebo effect was really interesting, I was having a conversation with a friend a couple weeks ago about The Secret and how it her ideas seem so ridiculous, but now I'm thinking that even if it is just a placebo effect, it still might work and actually impact people's lives.
