Amy Wilinski-Lyman review Amanda’s Fall

Wow!

Amanda's Fall

Amanda’s Fall

I never thought I could find such an entertaining, fun book on such a serious subject! In Amanda’s Fall: A Story for Children About Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), the author does an awesome job in making a story about a traumatic brain injury not scary and not boring. I really enjoy the rhyming verse, lovely soft colored illustrations and how the book is written from the point of view of the child with the TBI. As a brain injury survivor herself, Kelly Bouldin Darmofal knows all too well what it’s like to enter that challenging world. I was totally hoping for more resources at the end, and voila, they were there. Thank you Kelly for bringing light to a difficult topic!

An application of the philosophy of science to psychiatry

Although it’s been 140 years since Maudley’s groundbreaking treatise, modern psychiatry is in a state of intellectual collapse. No psychiatrist practicing today can point to a universally agreed model of mental disorder which explains the common observations of mental disorder, dictates a research program and ordains a form of management.

This book, the result of thirty years research in the philosophy of science, takes each of the major theories in psychiatry and demonstrates conclusively that it is so flawed as to be beyond salvation. It goes further, in that the author outlines a model of mental function which both satisfies the essential requirements of any scientific model, and shows how the phenomena of mental disorder can be described in a parsimonious dualist model which leads directly to a humanist form of management of the most widespread form of disability in the world today.

"This book is a tour de force. It demonstrates a tremendous amount of erudition, intelligence and application in the writer. It advances an interesting and plausible mechanism for many forms of human distress. It is an important work that deserves to take its place among the classics in books about psychiatry." —Robert Rich, PhD, AnxietyAndDepression-Help.com
