Schizophrenia Reviews

'This book presents arguments so profound that you (the reader) will never be able to think of "schizophrenia" in the same way; it may even help you stop thinking about it at all.' - Tony Lavender, Director. Salomans Centre for Applied Social & Psychological Development 'This is a marvellous piece of scholarship. Boyle's analysis is relentless, exceedingly informative, and will undoubtedly be disturbing to all that find comfort in fuzzy thinking, conventional wisdom and unexamined evidence.' - Stuart A. Kirk, Professor and Marjorie Crump Chair, School of Public Policy and Social Research, University of California
