About the Book
"The Great Pretender" investigates the mystery behind a radical experiment conducted in the 1970s by Stanford social psychologist David Rosenhan. The experiment involved seven healthy and sane people who were convinced to fake insanity and admit themselves to mental hospitals to test the reliability of psychiatric diagnoses. The results of the study sent shockwaves through the field of Psychiatry and transformed the mental health care system, but not without intense scrutiny- what did this study actually prove?
"'The Great Pretender' is a true-life detective story that doubles as a sweeping history of our broken mental health-care system. Cahalan herself has experienced this system as both a patient and a reporter, and her background informs every fascinating page of this dogged investigative odyssey." - Luke Dittrich, New York Times bestselling author of Patient H.M.
