Gary Greenberg will be at Powells’s Books May 19th to present his new book, The Book of Woe: The Making of the DSM and the Unmaking of Psychiatry.
The Book of Woe reveals the deeply flawed process by which mental disorders are invented and uninvented — and why increasing numbers of therapy patients are being declared mentally ill.
The Atlantic writer and author Daniel Smith says of the book: “If you want to understand how we think of mental suffering today—and why, and to what effect—read this book.”
Gary Greenberg may be the only expert who has been on the inside of the “making of” the DSM-5 as a therapist while also reporting on it as a journalist.
