This intriguing book undercuts everything you thought you knew about psychotherapy.

“Szasz extends the conviction he first expressed in The Myth of Mental Illness that the concept of mental illness is both erroneous and immoral; ergo, the treatment thereof must also be immoral. Moreover, since there is no such thing as mental illness there cannot possibly be such a thing as psychotherapy.”–British Journal of Psychiatry
