“Review of Listening to Prozac by Peter D. Kramer.” Kramer examines the dramatic personality changes sometimes produced by Prozac. He is often hesitant about the use of Prozac for “cosmetic psychopharmacology,” but his book is still a substantial defense of the use of the drug for change of mood, a greater self-ease, or a boost in self-confidence. “Prozac is very often a drug for those very much at the periphery of any psychiatrist’s definition of ‘ill’: people who are shy, or diffident, or moody, who are very much at the center of any biblical counselor’s definition of the need for normal sanctification.”
