Inspired by Books

Are you looking for a superb book to read? 

I led a non-fiction book club for several years. This group met together at a cafe on a monthly basis and we read one book per month. My interest in psychiatry does not end at my place of employment. The following books inspired me to write my own book (in no particular order). 

  • The Psychopath Whisperer: The Science of Those Without Conscience, by Kent A. Kiehl
  • On Combat: The Psychology and Physiology of Deadly Combat in War and in Peace, by Dave Grossman, Loren W. Christensen, and Gavin de Becker
  • Crazy: A Father's Search Through America's Mental Health Madness, by Pete Earley
  • The State Boys Rebellion, by Michael D'Antonio
  • Emptying Beds: The Work of an Emergency Psychiatric Unit, by Lorna A. Rhodes
  • The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales, by Oliver Sacks
  • Treating the Poor: A Personal Sojourn Through the Rise and Fall Of Community Mental Health, by Matthew P. Dumont
  • P.C., M.D.: How Political Correctness Is Corrupting Medicine, by Sally L. Satel
  • The Insanity Offense: How America's Failure to Treat the Seriously Mentally Ill Endangers Its Citizens, by E. Fuller Torrey
  • Weekends at Bellevue: Nine Years on the Night Shift at the Psych E.R., by Julie Holland
  • After Her Brain Broke: Helping My Daughter Recover Her Sanity, by Susan Inman
  • Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness, by Susannah Cahalan
