"This is a philosophical rethinking of the limitations of randomized controlled trials and the value of cross-over experiments conducted with a single patient. ... This is a book for experienced clinicians who are knowledgeable about current evidence-based treatment modalities and who can objectively recognize when to consider different options for treatment."
