Nearly two years after the release of Unhinged, the book continues to prompt conversation among readers and reviewers.
In the late summer 2011, Dr. Michael Blumenfield posted a review of Unhinged on his blog “Psychiatry Talk,” which included a Q&A with Dr. Carlat. You can read that review here: http://www.psychiatrytalk.com/2011/08/unhinged-by-dan-carlat-book-review
Dr. Blumenfield wrote a companion piece for the Journal of the American Academy of Psychoanalysis. You can see that here (reading the review requires purchase): http://aapdp.org/index.php/publications/volumes-summer/summer_2011_vol_39_no2/
In November 2011, the journal Psychiatric Services published a review of Unhinged written by Jeffrey Geller, MD, MPH. Dr. Geller calls Unhinged “an autobiographical coming-of-age account in psychiatry at the turn of the 20th century, much as David Viscott’s The Making of a Psychiatrist was the coming-of-age story of psychiatry for the end of the 1960s.” You can read the review here: http://ps.psychiatryonline.org/article.aspx?articleid=179894
