Cracked selected as one of the Top Ten Books of the Year

NetGalley has selected James Davies’ Cracked – Why Psychiatry is Doing More Harm Than Good as one of the ten best books of 2013.

“James Davies’ timely expose of the psychiatry industry makes for fascinating and thought-provoking reading. Using his insider knowledge to illustrate for a general readership how psychiatry has put riches and medical status above patients’ well-being, Davies shows a real flair for the polemic, as well as a real sympathy for the senstivity of the subject.”
