“An astonishing book: honest, sober, exciting, and humane… [Shrinks] brings you to the very forefront of one of the most amazing medical journeys of our time.” –Siddhartha Mukherjee

Psychiatry has come a long way since the days of chaining “lunatics” in cold cells. But, as Jeffrey Lieberman, MD, reveals in his eye-opening book, the path to legitimacy for “the black sheep of medicine” has been anything but smooth.

Dr. Lieberman traces the field from its birth as a mystic pseudo-science to its late blooming maturity–beginning after World War II–as a science-driven profession that saves lives. With fascinating case studies and portraits of the field’s luminaries–from Sigmund Freud to Eric Kandel–SHRINKS is a gripping read, and an urgent call-to-arms to dispel the stigma of mental illnesses by treating them as diseases rather than unfortunate states of mind.
