Is there anything you would change about this book?
This is a very interesting book in many parts, but I am not sure everyone will appreciate the detailed accounts of medical case histories. For me the latter was the book's weakness. However, if you fast-forward the case histories and cut to the chase, the theories of persecution, the evolutionary approach, the connections with modern (urban) life — all these elements make for insightful listening. I am going through it a second time around and discovering many things that I missed. I recommend this book.

the golds work toes the line between that of the psychological world and that of an ordinary, curious reader. concepts are explained in a myriad of interesting ways to help get the point across, followed by examples directly from a person's story.
I learned a lot about brain function, psychology, mental illness, and how external forces influence all of the above in an engaging, fascinating way.
