    Doing Psychiatry Wrong: A Critical and Prescriptive Look at a Faltering Profession reveal a pragmatic, humanistic psychotherapy approach in which the patient's story must be heard in order to make sense of the illness and the response to it. With skill and gumption, Muller challenges diagnoses made too easily but inaccurately by colleagues, including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, while they often miss delirium. Readers may like or dislike his claim that patients have an active role in their ailment and its amelioration, but he argues well, giving neuroscience and pharmacology their due while at the same time recognizing the importance of personal responsibility and social milieu. He cares about patients and psychiatry, voicing a protest that is also a tribute to a profession whose very name means soul doctor. This book reminds all mental health professionals that biology is always a factor, but not necessarily the most important factor, in human behavior. Biological preemption has done a disservice to us all, and Rene Muller's prescription should be taken seriously." - E. James Lieberman, PsycCRITIQUES, 53 (5), 2008
