    DescriptionBeginning with B. F. Skinner and the legend of a child raised in a box, Slater takes us from a deep empathy with Stanley Milgram's obedience subjects to a funny and disturbing re-creation of an experiment questioning the validity of psychiatric diagnosis. Previously described only in academic journals and textbooks, these often daring experiments have never before been narrated as stories, chock-full of plot, wit, personality, and theme.

    Review quote
    It is precisely [Slater's] intimate confessional approach that is able to reveal the poetry latent in the sterile laboratory.... A powerful and even inspiring meditation on the strengths and weaknesses hidden in our nature. --Eric Wargo"
