Reading Goals

(Edited)

I have collected all these books by Johann Hari. Over the years of struggling to help others (homeschool families and my own children) as well as myself with assorted mental issues, I have learned to regard the mainstream views of medical and education professionals with a healthy skepticism more parents should have. I have also looked for answers in many places that might seem odd for neurotypicals.

Eventually I discovered this author. A true journalist rather than a psych professional, he asked questions nobody else was asking and listened to people nobody else regarded.

Chasing the Scream offers alternatives to the failed "war on drugs"--humane alternatives. Lost Connections looks at the real causes of depression and and sees it as something other than a cash cow for the pharmaceutical companies.

Stolen Focus is the book I'm reading now. I will let y'all know when I finish it. I just have to focus long enough!

I read Chasing the Scream a few years ago. It was carefully-researched and well-written. I didn't realize the author had written more books! I will need to see if the library has them.

He is a great researcher and writer. My daughter also read "Chasing the Scream" and will get the others from me soon. She works with children with autism and is getting her Master's degree in applied behavioral analysis. !CTP !PIZZA
