really liked it

This book was really interesting, I am not from any form of medical background and fancied a change from the norm.

I enjoyed the different cases, and they all helped add together to form the conclusion that there is a fine line between sanity and madness and that we all have our mad points.

It was well written and I read it pretty quickly, I have tried to read scientific literature books in the past and found that I have put them down, never to be reopened.

Some of the aspects of the book, such as corporate psycopaths, and pharmaceutical conspiracies to deem more people mentally imbalanced due to a variety of checklists i.e. tests could warrant another book in their own rite.

The subject of Tony is the continual point of reference, reminds me a little of one flew over the cuckoos nest, without the terrible ending. But the reader is not left knowing what really happened to Tony.

Worth a read, but dont start analysing yourself and,others around you

And then there is the question are the mentally ill being treated by the mentally ill?
