Hey Phil...this is really interesting, and of course you're right that no such book was ever published about, say, imipramine. (The very title seems to underscore the fact that Breggin isn't acting, only reacting.)

But anyway, I'm curious if you can think of other examples of the same phenomenon (backlash against hype)...I agree that it does happen but can't think of any other examples myself at the moment and was wondering if you had one or more in mind?
