Description
Along with Gigi Vorgan, his co-author on such books as The Alzheimer's Prevention Program and The Memory Bible, Gary Small here treats us to stories of his most intriguing cases from 30 years of psychiatry and groundbreaking research on the human brain. From naked headstands and hysterical blindness to fainting schoolgirls and secret double lives, it is an illuminating journey into the mind of a practicing psychiatrist and his life in medicine as it evolves over time.

"While working a psychiatric ward shift as a new doctor, [Small] is faced with an unresponsive client who is naked and standing on her head. Another client seems obsessed with having an arm amputated. A couple faces conflicting dreams and nightmares of a Disneyland wedding.... From his fumbling attempts at looking professional with a client who is certain he's trying to seduce her, to a recent encounter with a mentor who feels that his career has been a fraud ... the stories are witty; the clients are treated respectfully, and the reader reaps the reward."Booklist
