back cover - In 1986, Harvard Medical School student Paul Lozano sought out prominent Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Margaret Bean-Bayog for treatment for depression. In 1991, Lozano committed suicide, nine months after his doctor terminated an intense and unorthodox therapy regimen. A brilliant young man had been reduced to a state of infantile dependency--apparently without any further will to live. Beyond this tragic true story--and the legal case it spawned--lie questions both profound and troubling about the nature, practice and limitations of psychiatry itself.
