About the Author

Tanveer Ahmed is a Sydney based psychiatrist working in private practice. He lives with his wife and two daughters. His first book is a migration memoir titled The Exotic Rissole.


A terrific book here full of insight, information and highly interesting the book a warm and beating heart. This is a very important insight into the fantastic variety of human responses to adversity. -- Gabrielle Lord, best-selling author Society is stretching the definition of mental health. As Tanveer notes, mental health has been equated with emotional distress. We are changing our view of trauma, seeking counsellors for all occasions. What's going on? Tanveer's case studies illuminate these trends. But readers will find them interesting for their own sake, stories of humanity. His book is nothing less than an account of how we live now: from Mujahideen to Mcmansions. -- Bob Carr, former NSW Premier Tanveer Ahmed's Fragile Nation comes as revelation to me. I have following his writing for many years and have always been impressed by his knowledge, valuable insights and willingness to express unpopular truths. But I was riveted by his stories of the people he cares for as a psychiatrist working in Western Sydney: angry white men, alienated youth seduced by Islam, damaged refugees, the children of tiger mothers. Amazing people revealed with sensitivity and candour, blessedly free of the ideological claptrap that often captures the saintly souls who work in the helping professions. Here's to Tanveer Ahmed - Australia's Theodore Dalrymple. -- Bettina Arndt, author and clinical psychologist.
