Reviews

"Intuitive and investigative, personal and historical, narrative-rich and fact-packed...Part of what makes this book riveting is the way Sharpe sets her own story within the larger context of cultural, social, and psychiatric changes that moved depression (along with other mental illnesses) into the medical spotlight." -- Elle "Sharpe is excellent at detailing the positives and negatives of these drugs ... But she is best at probing broader societal issues ... This is a fine book that nicely weaves together personal, sociological, and philosophical perspectives for a thoughtful view of how antidepressants are shaping many people's lives." -- Publishers Weekly "A knowing account of what it is like to grow up on psychiatric medications...Balanced and informative--an education for any parent considering psychiatric medication for a troubled adolescent." -- Kirkus Reviews "Beautifully written... This is a book for anyone taking or thinking about taking antidepressants, anyone who prescribes them, anyone who wonders about their suitability-or anyone who wants a mirror held up to our time." -- Dr. David Healy, author of Let Them Eat Prozac "A fascinating look at how drugs and trends have shaped the identities of individuals and of a generation-provocative without being sensationalistic, skillfully written, and totally necessary." -- Emily Gould, author And the Heart Says Whatever
