Publisher's Summary

Beginning with B. F. Skinner and the legend of a child raised in a box, Lauren Slater takes us from a deep empathy with Stanley Milgram's obedience subjects to a funny and disturbing re-creation of an experiment questioning the validity of psychiatric diagnosis. Previously described only in academic journals and textbooks, these often daring experiments have never before been narrated as stories, chock-full of plot, wit, personality, and theme.

What the Critics Say

"As much urgent reassessment as historical re-creation...one of the most informative and readable recent books on psychology." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Great book, robotic reader"

    This is a great book for anyone who is interested in psychology, however I found the reader difficult to listen to because of her robotic tendencies. Bearable, especially because I was able to get through more of the book listening to it while driving/doing things around the house that needed to get done than I would have been if I had to sit down and read it, but not the most enjoyable experience.
