  1. The author had blindly accepted that chemical imbalances were a proved testable measurable fact of science. When he first heard someone suggest biochemical imbalances of brain neurotransmitters was a myth, he dismissed it as ridiculous. Then came the anonymous envelope of information that changes his view and motivated him to write this amazing must read book.
  2. A reporter, Robert Whitaker, publishes a story on how well a new psychiatric drug works only to have an anonymous envelope sent to him with the stunning truth that told the opposite untold story.
  3. This fabulous book is written like a spy movie except it is non-fiction.
  4. It shows that psychiatric drugs do not work, cause devastating physical side effects and debilitating withdrawal effects when you try to escape and become drug free.
  5. If you are on neuroleptic drugs or any drug prescribed by any doctor for anxiety, depression, schizophrenia etc., you must buy this book.... it may save your life.
  6. We highly recommend this book.
