I am a mental health professional I found this book informative and very easy to listen to. It presents a very complex and highly emotive historical background to mental health care and treatment in a succinct and thought provoking manner. It covers all the main domains that one would expect as well as giving the anti psychiatry movement some consideration. I would highly recommend it for anyone involved in the mental health field, either as consumer or provider. From a quality point of view, some of the voice editing is noticeable.
