"The Light in His Soul:  Lessons from My Brother'sSchizophrenia is more thanjust an unusually articulate description of the experience of living in worldin which one cannot tell reality from hallucinations. This well-written bookalso quite effectively describes the long-reaching effects of child sexualabuse, growing up with a mentally ill parent, and being a survivor of a familymember who dies by suicide. Most importantly, this book offers hope through itsdescription of the road to healing for all involved." --Anita Schlank, Ph.D., ABPP, Forensic Clinical Psychologist, editor, TheSexual Predator book series
