This book is a must for anyone suffering from this heart wrenching disease, friends and family of schizophrenics and anyone else interested in learning the first hand horror of this illness.

Shanti's book covers all bases, from medical diagnosis and psychiatric definitions to her own personal diaries, augmented by chapters written by those close to her offering their perspectives of experiencing the same events.

Far superior to The Quiet Room, Nausea or any other book describing living with schizophrenia. Highly recommended!

Most books I've read on schizophrenia have been written by so-called experts (in other words people in the medical profession) and are usually somewhat lacking when it comes to how the victims of this terrible disease actually feel about what is happening to them. Dealing with the daily and incessant turmoil created within ones life by this disease is something that every professional who works with schizophrenics should understand. This book lends a greater understanding of schizophrenia for both the average person and medical personnel as well.

A great book from an even greater perspective. Having a sibling with schizophrenia and wanting to understand it better, I have relentlessly sought literature that would bring me greater insight into the inner lives of those afflicted with this horrifying condition. I have read hundreds of documents, articles, and books on the subject, but have yet to find anything so complete and concise in relation to the thoughts of a person living with a mind ...that has a mind of its own.
