Description: " Captivating. . . . No history of modern psychiatry is complete without his story."-Andrew Solomon, author of The Noonday Demon Dr. Walter J. Freeman ranks as one of the most scorned physicians of the 20th century. Many people still believe a number of myths about his lobotomies: that they turned people into human vegetables, that he did them all secretly, and that he performed one on Frances Farmer. Yet, many of the most important medical figures during Freeman's time lent their support to his work. This intriguing biography gives us a profound look into the life of a complex scientific genius who defies easy description, presenting a side of the story many have yet to hear. Jack El-Hai (Minneapolis, MN) has contributed to many publications, including the Atlantic Monthly, the Washington Post Magazine, and American Heritage.
