PSYCYIATRY-THE ULTIMATE BETRAYAL examines psychiatry from its early beginnings to the present and traces its rise to influence in our society. It is a remarkable story of style over substance, of promises over results, and unrestrained thirst for power. But it is also the story of gullibility: of the politicians who believed the public relations and kept forking out the dollars; of the educators who violated their duty to pass knowledge on to our young and accepted provenly unworkable theories; of media which naively propagated unspected claims and wild theories as truth.
The influence of psychiatric thought upon our lives has been catastrophic. In this searching examination, you will learn exactly how this has happened, how so much of what we casually think of today as "the way it is" had its beginnings in the faulty theories of men who had less than our best interests at heart.
But they say knowledge is power, and with this knowledge you will also learn how we can reverse this tide of destruction and regain what is of value in our lives and our society.
It is time things changed for the better instead of for the worse. This important book is a tool that will help bring such a change about. It is long overdue.

"After reading this book, no longer will we feel that many completely normal patterns of behavior will arbitrarily be labeled as madness. If anything, the economic self-serving interest of an unscientific group will be shown for what they are---A group of Emperors with no clothes. I am recommending this book for all the healing professionals at our center as well as their patients." -- Gary Null, PHD
"I think you know that I found Ultimate Betrayal to be unrivaled portrayal of psychiatry's essential tendency to engage in social engineering under the guise of 'medical expertise'--a dangerous role that they cleverly cultivate at our expense. This book is extremely well done, and I sincerely hope that it will be widely read." -- Director, Office of Consumer Affairs, New Hampshire Hospital, Concord
"Not since Paul Revere took his midnight ride to alert our forefathers that the British were coming has a WARNING been so urgently needed as the wake-up call you deliver in PSYCHIATRY-THE ULTIMATE BETRAYAL" -- Clinton Miller, National Council for Improved Health
"Psychiatry-The Ultimate Betrayal...answers a tremendous number of questions as to what happened to cause the social unrest we see on a daily basis in this country" -- Morton Feldman, Executive Vice President, National Association of Chiefs of Police
