Psychologists are people we love to hate. At best, they're compassionate detectives of the human soul, healers and diagnosticians, assessing the internal machinations that structure our lives and behavior. At worst, however, they're smug, hyper-educated, bombastic, yappy, socially deaf, thrice-divorced and twice-separated spouse-swapping cat-torturing perverts.
Plus, they're all in this book. And so are their patients.
C.P. Boyko's Psychology and Other Stories is a brilliant study of mental illness, mental health, and the people who try to tell them apart.
