'Another masterpiece. Szasz has produced a strong philosophical, psychiatric, forensic, sociological, and ethical analysis of suicide. I emphasize sociological, as it is a worthy heir to Durkheim’s classical contribution.'

- Henry Lothane, Mount Sinai School of Medicine

'[Thomas Szasz] is the preeminent critic of psychiatry in the world.' - Richard Vatz, Towson University
