Description: Based on real life experiences and written by an internationally recognized expert in emerging fields of psychology, Madman immerses the reader into the world of a psychology intern working on the psychiatric unit of a modern teaching hospital. With irreverent humor, a surreal imagination, and elements of eastern philosophy, this coming-of-age story captures the point of view of the young clinical psychologist, Thomas Holden. A keen observer with a comic eye, Holden¿s ongoing internal musings and his strange experiences with patients and staff, expose both the absurdity and the idealism inherent in psychotherapeutic practice. As we meet Holden, it¿s early morning; he¿s driving up hill to the medical center. Birds are talking¿uh¿birds are chirping. He starts his day on the edge of the surreal and it¿s just the beginning. A depressed patient he discharged yesterday was run over by a mail truck. Is he responsible? Another patient, a violent schizophrenic who drowns baby birds, thinks that men in raincoats are trying to kill him. If that isn't enough, Holden¿s assigned yet another difficult patient - a "John Doe" who apparently has no memory or identity. The police found him wandering the highway, collecting and burying road kill. Is this John Doe truly crazy, or is there something he's hiding, something insidious he's deliberately trying to do to Holden? Possessed by his patients and his own doubts, Holden takes a hard look at psychology, psychoanalysis, and science itself and questions whether any of it is enough to save him or us?
