Tom Burns

Very Short Introductions

  • Psychiatry is increasingly a part of everyday life (think about Prozac, ADHD, Care in the Community) and this book provides a valuable and comprehensible introduction to the subject.
  • Covers a broad range of topics, from the main illnesses and their identification, to the history of their treatment, and the future of the discipline.
  • Tom Burns was the psychiatric advisor to the UK Parliamentary committee scrutinising the UK Mental Health Bill.
