Anyone who has read academic/scientific journals of any type, will likely appreciate the humor in this text. For all of the seriousness of journals, this provides an antidote. While the topic of the book is mostly psychology/psychiatry, the prose can be appreciated by those in other disciplines, as well. The book would make an excellent gift for someone in their senior year of college, or for someone doing post-grad or post-doc work. If they are reading a lot of journals and burning the midnight oil working on papers, they might appreciate the levity that comes from reading this book.
Isn't this the truth!

Any one who is or has worked as a therapist will be able to relate to the humor of this book. You will be able to see your patients, academic advisors and co-workers in the spoofs. We have to be able to poke fun at what we do, otherwise we could never do it. This book is funny, but not in a laugh-out-loud way.
