Ted Millon, creator of several popular personality inventories and a leading researcher and author in personality and psychopathology, has written an informative yet enjoyable history of mental health for a general audience. This new book begins with the early Greek, Roman, and Eastern philosophers and describes the evolution of modern psychiatry and psychology, from Kraepelin and Freud, to modern perspectives, such as interpersonal and relational models and the biopsychosocial approach. Filled throughout with original artwork, Millon ends with a summary of current assessment and treatment methods for disorders of the mind.
