Psychiatrist Theodore Dalrymple is fascinated by the follies of high achievers. Theodore Dalrymple uses his addiction to collecting - which he himself hides from his wife, also a psychiatrist - to describe a range of interesting cases. There are the early vivisectionists and anti-vivisectionists, abolitionists of slavery, psychiatrists, doctors, theologians, writers DH Lawrence, Aldous Huxley, P.G. Wodehouse, Conan Doyle and Dylan Thomas, homeopaths and their connection with Nazism, Shakespeareans, surgeons, biologists and philosophers.
