Suspicious Minds is an important book. It's sharp,
compassionate and incredibly well researched. It gives a window
into current psychiatric debates, and it builds toward a theory
that is at least plausible and definitely thought provoking.-- "The
Globe and Mail"
"Suspicious Minds offers lessons to anyone interested in the complexity of the mental health field's future."-- "New York Post"
"The book amounts to nothing less than a frontal--or perhaps pre-frontal--challenge to the dominant view of modern psychiatry, which looks to neuroscience to explain disorders of the mind. . . . Suspicious Minds comes alive with often-provocative notions. [Joel and Ian Gold] pepper the book with often fascinating case histories of the deluded, which provide more proof that no fantasist can hope to match the wonders--and horrors--of the human mind."-- "Washington Post"
"The book provides a bracing insight into the natural hidden camera apprehensions of our era, through the eyes of the most vulnerable among us. Artists, videographers and writers interested in the philosophy of the digital era will want to place Suspicious Minds on their nightstands."--Danielle Ofri, MD, PhD, author of What Doctors Feel: How Emotions Affect the Practice of Medicine "The Times-Picayune"
