Reviews

"America'''s premier pioneering biological psychiatrist Paul McHugh blows the whistle on sloppy and trendy thinking in psychiatry. . . . A must read."--Michael S. Gazzaniga, Ph.D., author of "Human: The Science Behind What Makes Us Unique"
--Michael S. Gazzaniga
"This is the absorbing, never-before-told story of how a cult of Freudian psychiatrists went on a witch-hunt across America ... before a small band of scientists risked their reputations and livelihoods to expose the cult for what it was: a wacky pack a quacks."--Tom Wolfe

--Michael S. Gazzaniga
""Try to Remember" is a riveting account of his battle against the repressed memory movement. It is also a passionate plea for psychiatry as a humane science, grounded in evidence, and focused on helping people in the here and now."--Michael J. Sandel, author of "The Case against Perfection: Ethics in the Age of Genetic Engineering"

--Michael J. Sandel
"Readers of this splendid book will not forget its central lesson: If psychotherapists do not learn from their colossal mistakes, they will surely repeat them."--Carol Tavris, Ph.D., co-author of "Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me)"

--Carol Tavris
"Engagingly written and accessible to a wide audience . . . a gold mine of fresh insights and constructive suggestions concerning how we can improve our system of psychiatric diagnosis."--Richard J. McNally, Ph.D., author of "Remembering Trauma"

--Richard J. McNally
"Of all the mad ideas that have swept through the practice of psychiatry since Freud first undertook to map the unconscious, probably none has resulted in more cruelty to patients and their loved ones than those that led to the Recovered Memory Movement and its adjunct disease, Multiple Personality Disorder. . . . Paul McHugh is a healer."--Midge Decter, author of "An Old Wife's Tale"

--Midge Decter
"Paul McHugh documents some of the absurd concepts introduced into psychiatry . . . his book is of equal interest to those outside the healing professions as it is to those within them."-- Sir David Goldberg, Institute of Psychiatry, London, UK

--Sir David Goldberg
"Never has psychiatry been so simultaneously inundated with real science and with so much pseudoscience. . . . McHugh explains to uninitiated readers how he learned to tell the difference and where many of his colleagues went wrong."-- Alan Stone, M.D. Professor of Law and Psychiatry, Harvard University

--Alan Stone
