    It was interesting to learn about how the discovery of syphilis shaped the field of mental illness, and spurred on the battle of the brain versus the mind. After reading this, I feel like everything I've ever learned about mental health disorders is all bullshit made up by a bunch of...

    Superbly written book about the history of psychiatry through the lens of the discovery of the disease of syphilis and its ravaging effect on the brain, particularly in the 1700-1800's before cures were discovered and the disease was well understood. Many notable figures are thought to...

    I won this copy on good reads first reads Thank You! By reading this book I learned so much about hysteria and Mental Illness, a lot of it I knew nothing about. I found myself talking about my new found knowledge to all of my co workers and my husband. Having a daughter that has be...

    Wasn't what I expected, but it was fun and interesting to learn all about syphilis and the origins of other epidemics. I would recommend this book, especially as a a resource for a history on mental illness. ...

    This was fascinating and very readable! I found myself relating my new found knowledge to all of my friends. This is a must for anyone interested in the science of the brain be it psychiatric or neurology. ...

    A fascinating, informative narrative of a history about which i knew nothing?and could not have conceiced of. ...

    A very interesting read ...

    It's in interesting read/listen. Perhaps more than one ever wanted to know about a certain disease but seemingly relevant in today's world, the book does not drag or get too technical. ...
