About the Author:

Peter D. Kramer, M.D., recently named host of the national, weekly public radio series, The Infinite Mind, is "possibly the best-known psychiatrist in America," as The New York Times put it.

His latest book, Against Depression, will be published in May 2005.

In 2004, two programs of The Infinite Mind hosted by Kramer won top media awards: a Gracie Allen Award from the American Women in Radio and Television for an examination of "Domestic Violence" and a National Mental Health Association Media Award for “Between Two Worlds: Mental Health for Immigrants. Kramer has written for The New York Times Magazine and The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post Book Review, The Washington Post, the (London) Times Literary Supplement and U.S. News & World Report, among other publications. He lives in Providence, Rhode Island, where he is Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at Brown University, and has a private practice.

Book Description Penguin Books Australia, Australia, 1994. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Through fascinating case histories and revelatory encounters with patients, Dr. Peter Kramer captures the essence of contemporary psychiatric practice, allowing the reader to look over the shoulder of a doctor in order to discover the ways in which those who deal daily with the probelms of the mind think of the mind now. He also conveys what it feels like to be inside a changing profession and defines the roles of each of the tools--from medicine to empathy--used to help patients change. With drama, wit, and a breadth of learning that extends from Freud to neurobiology to the novels of Mark Twain and Virginia Woolf, Kramer allows us to see how psychiatry, that mystifying amalgam of science, art, and simple empathy, works.
