Kirsch, a researcher and clinical psychologist, for years referred patients to psychiatrists to have their depression treated with drugs before deciding to investigate for himself just how effective the drugs actually were. His research has demonstrated that what everyone knew about antidepressants was wrong. Instead of treating depression with drugs, we've been treating it with suggestion.

Great Book. His ideas, or rather the reality he has pointed out, is slowly filtering through the psych profession. About time! When I tell people about the bizarre effects\results of Placebos, they say, "Why don't Doctors just give out placebos, while telling their patients, they are really powerful drugs?" I say some Doctors do that, they are called Naturepaths.
