This book was quite practical and very useful information was provided. It is not only good for learnign about the disease and understanding it but also it shows how to deal with it and what ways to interact with someone who sufferes from schizophrenai. A definate important guide! I highly recommend it!

This is the most useful book that has been written about schizophrenia. I wish the families of all people who develop this brain disorder could be handed a copy along with the diagnosis. If families could get this book early on, so much suffering and confusion could be avoided and people would understand the next steps they need to take. They would also be less likely to be misled by the increasingly widespread rhetoric that tells us to avoid treating this illness with a medical approach. Powerful groups often persuade vulnerable people that anti-psychotic medications are useless; research demonstrates otherwise.
Fuller Torrey's book gave me the strength and information that I needed to offer my daughter the best possible help.

Not enough solutions but does well as far as advocating for people with Schizophrenia. The book explains the disease adequately.
