    "Not what I hoped for"

    Candace Pert seems eternally angry - her own admission. Rather than talking about her discoveries in more depth she tells her life story which is not too interesting, overly dramatic and without the detail to fully back her theories. What ever happened to finding the cure for Aids? Is she still waiting to get a break?

    "Couldn't make it through..."

    I love everything to do with psycology but I couldn't even make it through this one. I wouldn't waste your time. I do like "Listening to Prozac" by Peter Kramer thought.
