Irving Kirsch has the world doubting the efficacy of antidepressants. Based on fifteen years of research, The Emperor's New Drugsmakes an overwhelming case that what the medical community considered a cornerstone of psychiatric treatment is little more than a faulty consensus. But Kirsch does more than just criticize: He offers a path society can follow to stop popping pills and start proper treatment.
