Biographical note:

Jeffrey A. Lieberman, MD, is the Lawrence C. Kolb Professor and Chairman of Psychiatry at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and Director of the New York State Psychiatric Institute. He holds the Lieber Chair for Schizophrenia Research in the Department of Psychiatry at Columbia and serves as Psychiatrist in Chief at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia University Medical Center. Formerly the President of the American Psychiatric Association, he is a member of numerous scientific organizations and in 2000 was elected to the National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine. He lives with his wife and two sons in New York City.

Main description:

From alienists to mesmerists to shrinks: the fascinating story of psychiatry's demise and redemption in the field of medicine, by the former President of the American Psychiatric Association.

In SHRINKS, Jeffrey Lieberman, MD, shares the story of psychiatry's origins and the checkered history of useless or harmful treatments -- including hydrotherapy, lobotomies, and primal screaming -- to its rehabilitation and transformation into an evidence-based profession. A gripping and illuminating read, SHRINKS reveals shocking case studies and serves as an urgent call-to-arms to start treating mental illness as a disease rather than a state of mind.


Review quote:

"Shrinks is a great read and is highly recommended. By combining clinical case histories and theoretical musings, it describes where psychiatry came from and where it is going."

E. Fuller Torrey, author of Surviving Schizophrenia

Review quote:

"Jeffrey Lieberman has produced a masterful behind-the-scenes examination of psychiatry--and, by extension, the human condition. A wise and gripping book that tackles one of the most important questions of our time: what is mental illness?"—Andrew Solomon, author of Far from the Tree and The Noonday Demon

Review quote:

"This highly readable and fully accessible book puts the history of psychiatry into a modern perspective for the general reader."—Eric R. Kandel, MD, Winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, University Professor, Department of Neuroscience, Columbia University, author of The Age of Insight and In Search of Memory
