I always was suspicious of the story of "Sybil", and this book exposes the fraud completely. Basically, the psychiatrist, the patient and the author of the book were liars. Connie Wilbur (the psychiatrist) seemed to be a particularly sadistic women to boot. It's scary what is done in the name of that pseudo-science. The doctors have absolute control over their patients and don't have any idea what they are doing. Great book!
