Couldn't put it down

Excellent book, so easy to read and so enlightening. A difficult subject made so clear. I just wanted to read more.

Compelling......

I read an extract in the times, it's a compelling read. I'm looking forward to the release of the book.

Skeleton Cupboard

Disappointing. It's not until the end that you discover the case studies are fictional. Or are they? It's hard to tell. Still admire the work of Tanya Byron in the 'House of Tiny Tearaways' though!
