*Winner of an honorable mention from theSociety for Social Work and ResearchforOutstanding Social Work Book AwardMad Science argues that the fundamental claims of modern American psychiatry are based on misconceived, flawed, and distorted science. The authors address multiple paradoxes in American mental health research, including the remaking of coercion into scientific psychiatric treatment, the adoption of an unscientific diagnostic system that controls the distribution of services, and how drug treatments have failed to improve the mental health outcome.When it comes to understanding and treating mental illness, distortions of research are not rare, misinterpretation of data is not isolated, and bogus claims of success are not voiced by isolated researchers seeking aggrandizement. This book's detailed analysis of coercion and community treatment, diagnosis, and psychopharmacology reveals that these characteristics are endemic, institutional, and protected in psychiatry. They are not just bad science, but mad science.This book provides an engaging and readable scientific and social critique of current mental health practices. The authors are scholars, researchers, and clinicians who have written extensively about community care, diagnosis, and psychoactive drugs. This paperback edition makes Mad Science accessible to all specialists in the field as well as to the informed public.

The Mad Science of Golf is a one-of-a-kind book that explains how golfers have been permanently sidetracked by the high-tech hype of the golf industry. Through a series of questions and answers the book will literally reprogram your thinking and give you an entirely new perspective on golf, the golf industry, and the process of improvement. The book clearly answers the questions that golfers should have been asking a long time ago. On Golf Clubs: Can anything else (that really matters) be done to a golf club? Are golf clubs REALLY getting better every year? What kind of golf clubs do you REALLY need? On The Golf Swing: If swing mechanics are so important, why do the best players in the world all swing differently? Why does your golf swing keep changing? How come no matter how many lessons you take, you always need more? On Playing Better Golf: What’s the secret to scoring lower? How come some aspects of your game seem to never improve? What’s the ONLY why to achieve day-to-day consistency? The Mad Science of Golf is certainly not your typical how-to golf book. It will forever change your perception of golf equipment, the golf swing, and how to play better golf. It should be in every golfer’s library.

Blow the layers of dust off your 1940's mad scientist manuals. Remember when a rare disease could only be cured via spinal fluids that would render someone dead while saving another's life? Remember when beakers of colourful fluids frothed and bubbled until a super potion was brewed to (im)perfection? Remember when professors were barred from their universities for illegally experimenting on human subjects, to then become hell-bent on seeking their revenge? We do, and so do the authors of Barbwire Butterfly Books. Complete the picture with a haunted mansion or two, some creepy basements, and the most immoral proprietors and they're deceased (but undead) relatives you could ever hope NOT to meet... and we have one amazing classic double feature for your enjoyment!

You don't have to be an eccentric obsessive to be a scientist, but it helps... In The Mad Science Book, Reto Schneider tells the extraordinary tales of 100 of the more unusual experiments conducted across seven centuries of science. From the attempts of the 14th-century Dominican monk Theodoric von Freiberg to discover the cause of the rainbow, to the efforts of the 20th-century psychologist Harry Harlow to be the perfect mother to a family of reluctant rhesus monkeys, these are stories that are often bizarre, sometimes mind-boggling - occasionally stomach-churning - but always diverting, informative and enlightening.Among the myriad delights on display in this cabinet of scientific curiosities are the renowned doctor from Padua who sat in a pair of scales for 30 years, recording the minutest changes in his weight; the sheep, the duck and the rooster who became the world's first air passengers; the disgusting Dr Stubbins Ffirth, who swallowed other people's vomit in an attempt to prove that yellow fever cannot be transmitted from one person to another; the hapless soldier Alexis St Martin, left with a hole in his stomach after an accident with a musket; and the ever-optimistic Charles-Édouard Brown-Séquard, who injected himself with essence of guinea pigs' testicles as an anti-ageing remedy. There is trivia here in abundance, but also quirky, but genuinely influential, science, notably Merrill Flood's and Melvin Dresher's experiments with choices of outcomes, which have been widely influential as game theory.A fizzing cocktail of fascinating science and rich entertainment, The Mad Science Book tells the extraordinary stories of some truly, madly, geeky people. It should be top of every self-respecting science buff's Christmas 2008 wishlist.
