This wasn't nearly as enthralling as I'd hoped. While the DSM-5 really is something that needs to be discussed, I found this book boring. I agree with the author on many points, but I guess it was the style that turned me off. He's intelligent but wildly out of touch with the reality of mental illness and more in touch with his own opinions.
