The book A First-Rate Madness by Dr. Nassir Ghaemi registered on my radar was one night while watching The Colbert Report, a current events based, satirical television show. The host, Stephen Colbert, is known for lampooning his guests and at times can make them the brunt of the jokes, which is why it surprised me that someone who wanted to have a serious discussion about mental illness would choose this particular venue to hype his book. The interview was not only informative, but it was also charmingly funny. At the bottom of the page is a link to the video clip of Dr. Ghaemi on The Colbert Report talking about his book.
