Manfred  Lütz - The New Crazy – Why We've Been Treating the Wrong Ones


An updated edition of the international bestseller

Donald Trump in the US, Kim Jong-un in North Korea, Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil – the world seems to be getting more and more unhinged by the day. Can we really call these people mad? And can we do anything about it? What, ten years ago, tended to affect only lower-ranking VIPs now appears to have spread to the top of the rung, and madness seems to have taken over the reins.

Meanwhile, psychiatry and psychotherapy have also progressed. The New Crazy – intended for the general reader and written with a light touch – is Lütz's completely revised and updated edition of his 2009 Spiegel-bestseller Crazy!, in which he introduces us to all the latest diagnostic and therapeutic advances. What's the true definition of depression, anxiety disorder and schizophrenia? What can we do about addiction, especially about the new kinds of addiction we're seeing?

The highly regarded psychiatrist and bestselling author Manfred Lütz sheds a light on general insanity.

"Popular, pointed, political."
