This book is essentially a collection of informal essays and personal pieces that come out of the tradition of zine making. Because of the number of authors and variety of pieces the flow is definitely disjointed. Read this book for the first-hand insight it offers into mental illness and the continued mistreatment of the ill by the mental health industry that is specific to Britain in this collection, but which exists world wide.
