Product Description

Review

"Like a Sea World underwater view, Me, Myself, and Them provides a riveting peek into the world of schizophrenia for parents like me who yearn for understanding. For young people with schizophrenia, like our son, the book orients a frightening illness. For both families and persons with mental illness, this book is laced with hope, something in short supply in most other books."--Mindy Greiling, Minnesota State Representative and Executive Board Member, National Alliance on Mental Illness

"This beautifully told personal story provides an innovative platform for solid information about schizophrenia and its treatment. Highly informative to persons struggling with the onset of psychosis, and to families, friends, and mental health workers who struggle to understand and help."--William T. Carpenter Jr., M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Pharmacoogy, University of Maryland School of Medicine

"I strongly recommend this book to patients, families, clinicians and researchers interested in a first hand account of how schizophrenia changes the way the world looks, feels, and behaves. It is very moving and very informative. From compelling descriptions of changes in mood, cognition and perception to explanations about how the brain is affected and how drugs work, this brief but detailed personal statement and review of the state of the field is invaluable."--Daniel R. Weinberger, M.D., Director, Genes, Cognition and Psychosis Program IRP, NIMH, NIH

"The authors provide a first rate resource for anyone whose life is touched by schizophrenia. Through solid, easy to understand language, the manuscript provides useful guidance for others coping with this disease. Highly recommended." --Ming Tsuang, M.D., Ph.D., Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego

"Me, Myself and Them: A Firsthand Account of One Young Person's Experience with Schizophrenia is a straightforward and marvelously lucid retelling of Kurt Snyder's battle with his demons. Not only does it show us the experience of psychosis, it also explains, in jargon-free language, what each element of that experience means. Compelling and eminently readable, a book like this ought to be required reading for all high school and college students, demystifying as it does an illness all too long shrouded in misunderstanding, confusion, and fear."--Pamela Spiro Wagner, author of Divided Minds: Twin Sisters and Their Journey Through Schizophrenia

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book offers an emotionally charged and realistic but hopeful look at Schizophrenia from the perspective of a man who suffers from the illness. I work in the field of psychiatry and read this book with my friend who suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. Both he and I found the book to be objective, honest, and inspiring. The author outlines the struggles of Schizophrenia but does not focus on the limitations it has caused, he instead offers his struggles as lessons and tells of what worked best for him. Many times throughout the book my friend came to tears and said reading the pages were like reliving his own experiences. I am grateful this book was recommended to me by a peer and I would recommend it to patients, peers, and families of those touched by Schizophrenia. My friend, who has good insight into his illness, said this book helped him understand even more about himself and his illness. I highly recommend this book for anyone to read, especially those in the field of mental health or those who have friends, loved ones, or are themselves suffering from Schizophrenia.

This book is honest and written by someone experienced in the reality. He is not an academic studying from a distance. Difficulties, challenges, onset and coping strategies are outlines, and common misconceptions are discussed. This is a must read for anyone experiencing this mental illness or anyone involved with that person.
