With 15 years of research, Kirsch demonstrates that what everyone “knew” about antidepressants is wrong; what the medical community considered a cornerstone of psychiatric treatment is little more than a faulty consensus. But The Emperor’s New Drugs does more than just criticize: it offers a path society can follow to stop popping pills and start proper treatment.
About the author: Irving Kirsch, PhD, a native of New York City, is a professor of psychology at the University of Hull, United Kingdom, as well as professor emeritus at the University of Connecticut. He lives in Hull, England.

Great insights, but depression not a disease?
This book has some great insights and puts into perspective some of the very damaging practices used to 'evaluate,' drug efficacy. My one issue with both the book and author are that in spite of this insight he seems to be under the impression that depression is not actually a disease. Nor are there any suggestions for actual effective treatments for depression.

MH, big pharma and the Placebo Effect
This is a well presented review of key Mental Health treatment research. The Author spends a significant part of the book explaining in detail the Placebo Effect and its history / Evidence.
A good book with some very valid points and evidence, Now get some Excersise and CBT!
