BLUE DREAMS The Science and the Story of the Drugs That Changed Our Minds

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Betsy Foldes-Meiman

Contemporary Culture • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Psychologist Lauren Slater presents a fascinating history of psychiatry and psychopharmacology juxtaposed with anecdotes of her own struggles with mental illness. Betsy Foldes-Meiman's clear, down-to-earth narration complements the author's personal approach to her subject, which brings to bear her professional background in the field of psychology and her personal mental history. She describes her own mental disturbances in evocative detail and raises intriguing questions about the effectiveness of psychiatric drugs as well as their long-term effects. The well-paced narration aids the listener in following the myriad historical events and scientific details. S.E.G.
