This new book does for psychiatry what Why We Get Sick did for medicine in general
It asks and answers a new question: Why do mental disorders exist at all?
The answers are illustrated with stories from patients and suggestions for how to put psychiatry on the same evolutionary foundation as the rest of medicine
