“A wake-up call to a ‘Free Country’. If you think you live in a free country where you are free to do as you please as long as you hurt no one, read this book! Diane Klein does a superb job of demonstrating Psychiatry’s role in the prostitution of our justice system. It clearly shows how profit and political gain motives are used for incarceration in psychiatric institutions — in the name of help. The book also explores relationships and the potential of a determined person who is acting with genuine interest to help. By the end of the book, you can be sure that there is hope, there is help and YOU can do something about it.” – GARY BAREN

“I’d like to suggest a novel by Diane Klein, In the Name of Help. This first novel by Ms. Klein is more than an interesting story. It is a chockful-of-truth wake-up call for all of us for whom it is not yet too late.” Sincerely, BILL ANTHONY, Los Angeles

“CHILLING REALISM! My husband needed a couple of medical procedures done this past Wednesday. I was current with all of my books at home and asked a friend to borrow your, signed, book. I have to tell you, I’m not easy to please with reading. A story has to get me from the get-go or it’s a no go. In the Name of Help was so real and affable that I read it in one day. I felt part of the close trip from the beginning. Everything flowed in such an exciting manner I could not put it down for long. Congratulations! You have a winner here, God Bless.” – LINDA GENDUSA-THOMPSON

“On one level, this is a well-written, very real love story. It’s a novel about two people growing up in the ’60s — who finally really grow up in the ’90s. DON’T read this novel if you are easily scared. Because by the time you’ve finished it, you will know that someone COULD be about to knock on your door, to haul you away to a shortened life of misery and horror… in the name of help.” – RICH BYRD, Clearwater, Florida

“I have just finished the book. It has a powerful message. I would love to recommend the book [to] Oprah. Congratulations for having both the talent and the guts to live your dream this way.” – ELISABETH

Jesus, Nick lamented, they're such a small minority among the multitudes of those who don't seem to have a shred of decency in their entire being. I've seen too many money-hungry, nasty people in the profession, men and women who are so busy being impressed with their goddamned law degrees, and their ability to make big money, that they don't consider it necessary to act with some caring and ethics." -
