Interesting for anyone Novus I purchased the Kindle version of this book. It was easily readable on the screen of my android phone via the Kindle app.The author was diagnosed with schizophrenia in early middle-age and chronicles her recovery from that illness over the next several years. She relates how her symptoms have affected her ability to work and how she had struggled to find goals and purpose when not working. It is a relatively short book and a quick, easy read.When reading this book, one must keep in mind that the author is not a professional writer and this book was at least partly written during a flare-up of her psychotic symptoms. What this m. Charles B. said Insight and Integrity!. This book is fascinating, well written, extremely honest and thematic towards delusional understanding with a slant on Schizoaffective disorder that I have not come across before.

I am going to order it for my siblings and Father and Mother. It is excellent. The depictions help me tremendously to acknowledge and understand some of my own bizarre behavior of the past.

It includes my delusions and some of them are still a mystery today, but that is often the case with this disorder, I believe. It discusses what is helpful and more importantly what is not.

I am currenly working full time in the mental health field and am enjoying life with a family and lots of friends, old and new. It is for loved ones as well as those with the disorder. This book is about recovery from Schizophrenia while on medication. Most of this all I wish this to be a book that offers hope to those who suffer from Schizophrenia. Since my diagnosis I have gone on to earn a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology and a Master's Degree in Psychology. Recovery is possible!
