Prof. James E. Alcock about our forthcoming book

Its our pleasure to inform that we have been highly evaluated by one of the most outstanding skeptics of the 20th Century – prof. James E. Alcock who wrote a review of our book. Due to his suggestions we changed the title of our book. Thank you James!

T. Witkowski & M. Zatonski, Psychology Gone Wrong. The Dark Sides of Science and Therapy. Boca Raton, FL: BrownWalker Press, January 2015.

I highly recommend this thoughtful and stimulating book to all. Not only should it be required reading for every psychologist and psychology student, but readers in general will benefit immensely as well, especially those who may be contemplating psychotherapeutic treatment. Its purview is broad, ranging from a penetrating examination of fundamental problems that plague academic psychological research to a critical analysis of the psychotherapy jungle, where pseudoscience thrives amongst the plethora of theories and practices offered to the public.  Psychology and people at large  can only benefit from this excellent analysis.”
