The Great Psychiatry Scam provides a detailed criticism of the profession of psychiatry, told from an autobiographical perspective. The critique expands on the analysis published in his book with Alvin Pam, Pseudoscience in Biological Psychiatry. Serious errors in logic, scholarship and standards of thought in psychiatry are exposed by Dr. Ross through humor, satire, autobiographical sketches and analysis. The field of psychiatry is not a branch of medicine in its current form. There is a posture of science, but the real substance of science is absent.

WINNER - in the category of Psychology at the 2009 Next Generation INDIE Book Awards! The Great Psychiatry Scam provides a detailed criticism of the profession of psychiatry, told from an autobiographical perspective. The critique expands on the analysis published in his book with Alvin Pam, Pseudoscience in Biological Psychiatry. Serious errors in logic, scholarship and standards of thought in psychiatry are exposed by Dr. Ross through humor, satire, autobiographical sketches and analysis. The field of psychiatry is not a branch of medicine in its current form. There is a posture of science, but the real substance of science is absent. Instead, psychiatry is dominated by folklore, anecdote and superstition. Fixing psychiatry requires two initial steps: acknowledging the state of the field, and devoting serious money and resources to mental health. Dr. Ross exposes the forlorn state of the field and proposes a solution, which can be found in his book, The Trauma Model.

Colin Ross's writing style is short, choppy sentences that pull no punches, especially when he's telling on his own profession: psychiatry. With humor, sarcasm, and flat out insulting language at times (and I admit it - I love this approach when done right), Dr. Ross uses his impressive intellect and genuine concern for the human condition to expose the incompatible goals of mainstream psychiatry. With a cast of characters that includes pompous physicians, profit-driven pharmaceutical companies, misguided managers, right up to and including the CIA, Dr. Ross explains how mental health treatment (not to mention the training to practice mental health treatment) can leave people worse off than before they encountered the system. He gives credit to the people who deserve it and gives the rest both barrels, and no apologies. If you've ever been exposed to the mental health system with bad results, or if you're a professional working in the field who's devastated by the medicalization of the field, this book is for you!

Psychiatry is the biggest scam going, according to this book. I tend to agree.Experimenting on the unsuspecting public in the US, testing drugs on already vulnerable populations is standard practice. The field has not developed, outside of prescription drugs, in the last forty years. It is a tale filled with information for consumers to beware.Those who need psychiatry for prescriptions need to take the time to review credentials and ask questions. Psychiatry has contributed to the cultural stigma of mental illness by discrediting complaints and concerns. Its a scam.

This is a good book and worth reading. It is pretty snarky and written from a pessimistic point of view. It still manages to convey important insight into a profession that is not well understood.

Colin A. Ross tells us about the dark side of psychiatry from MKULTRA projects to the fanatical search, within some psychiatric therapeutic practices, for people possessed literally by the devil or Satan. He pokes fun at psychiatrists from the old school before 1970 that denied the existence of incest and reminds us psychiatry to this day describes reality poorly. Ross treats patients with Multiple Personality Disorder who other doctors he says prefer no longer to treat. Often, he laments the lack of scientific rigor throughout the history of psychiatry from Freud to the present. But this is not a scientific book which applies science to any realm of psychiatry. No double blind experiment, like the one shown in an early 1990's Nova episode which discredited the facilitated communication between so-called experts and severe autistic patients, gets described in this book.

Once he gets started, he tells us a story of his life, including mostly the story of his career within the psychiatric profession. He explains his own experiences in the field and offers a point of view he says he explains more fully in some of his other books. Ross can be humorous and likable. I find myself agreeing with him and later not so sure. His language can be downright vulgar. And I can appreciate that.

This is not a scholarly work. There are no citations, footnotes, or end-of-the-book notes. There is no alphabetical list or index at the end of the book.

Dr. Ross knows his stuff and can be humorous as well as informative.

A long awaited witness from an honest man, an insider speaking out. - A diamond shining light unto the dark History of the still dark profession and scam of psychiatric drug-abuse.
