5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely wonderful read applicable to all crafting!, August 23, 2012
This review is from: Crochet Saved My Life (Kindle Edition)
This is a fabulous book detailing not just the author's, but many others', personal struggles with mental illness and highlighting how crochet (and crafting, more generally) served as a shining light.
This book weaves personal stories with scientific research in an easy-to-read style. And, let me say, her personal story is shocking and fascinating!
If you (or someone you know) struggles with a mental illness, you will instantly relate to the people featured in the book. And as a crocheter myself, I completely acknowledge the healing ability of the craft. However, the author's key point is that doing concrete, hands-on work is therapeutic, and therefore would apply to a wide number of crafts/skills: gardening, cooking, sewing, painting...
My only regret is the title of the book... I think having 'crochet' in the title limits the perceived audience of this book. It's much bigger than just crochet!
A wonderful read. I highly recommend it.
