San Francisco Chronicle "A talented writer and a compassionate doctor who understands what works best for him and his patients." Publishers Weekly "Writes with grace, honesty, and humility about the psychiatrist's task of judging the mind and heart of another human being." Library Journal "A gripping, and at times unsettling, account."
