    Review quote
    "This book is an intelligent, witty guide for anyone who is considering an "innovative" or unconventional approach to mental health or personal transformation." "Singer brings educated skepticism to her topic--the wide-open field of fringe psychotherapy." (Dallas Morning News) "Crazy Therapies is a much-needed book to help consumers navigate the unregulated filed of psychotherapy." "This is a consumer guide to help sort out what might be right for you." (The Denver Post) "Written in a clear, highly entertaining, and popular style, "Crazy Therapies" is just the book for anyone trying to wend their way through the daunting therapeutic maze." "Tells a sad but fascinating tale of pathological therapies that abound throughout the country." "This title is a good complement to Jack Gorman's The New Psychiatry. Together, the two titles provide a solid background for anyone seeking assistance with life's problems." "Crazy Therapies is fascinating reading and would be helpful for anyone considering any innovative approach to mental health or personal transformation." "...a must read for anyone who believes that there is sometimes little difference between some mental health practices and the occult. This is that rare book that is both highly entertaining and deeply disturbing..." (Behavioural Interventions, April 2001)
