New book by Robert Whitaker author of Mad in America

This morning I received a call from a family member who is reading Robert Whitaker's next book "Anatomy of an Epidemic" which she took out from the library.

Her report to me is it is a book worth reading though at times emotionally challenging.  No surprise, as" Mad in America", for me, is a devastating essential read that requires taking time between sections to "recover" before going on.

Glad to know it is in our library system.
