really liked it

I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a wonderful memoir of a young graduate student's internship at a failing mental hospital. Her experiences are interesting and sometimes bizarre. The book kept me interested from beginning to end. I was actually quite disappointed when the book ended and there would be no more rotations for Darcy to share with us.
However, I don't think it's fair to say that this book explains how every therapist is got there. Every therapist is different. Any many opinions on different psychological techniques are presented as facts in this book and not as opinions. So it is good to read this with an open mind and remember that, for example, not all therapists despise the use of CBT.
