» » The Necessity of Madness
John Breeding's Necessity of Madness is a work of genius. He has a unique understanding of the damage that psychiatry causes society. Foucault would have been proud. Breeding's argument is so well researched, thought out and articulate that it would be difficult for anyone not to be convinced by him. Like any great work of literature what Breeding says is controversial. The publication of his book in Europe and particularly within the UK will inspire the mental health survivor movement to speak up and speak out. His brilliant philosophy gives more venom to the social model of madness and distress in the UK. As we struggle to develop our own philosophy Breeding's book can be used as a tool to give the social model the momentum it so desperately needs. Widespread circulation and consumption of this book within the UK survivor movement would make an underdeveloped philosophy developed. Breeding is so lucid and enlightening that he gives us all hope. There is no need for apathy anymore. It's payback time.

Just be aware... it's pretty certain he is coming from a Scientology approach. If you can eat the meat, and split out the bones, it's an interesting read.

Not being a pysch major or anything of the sort, I simply got this book because I needed some help detoxing from many destructive religious beliefs, I highly recommend this book to get a deeper understanding of the human mind.

This book suggests that psychiatry may not be the 'answer' to mental illness, and provides great insight into the lives of those living with mental illness. An enjoyable and interesting read for everyone.

An ingenious account of a book that is anti-psychiatry by an American Professor who is a psychiatrist. This book is an educational tool for the British Mental Health Movement.
