Already knew a lot of what it had to offer from other readings, but a good book for sure. Her project is to be commended - actually going out and talking to people who have a mentally ill family member, what a novel concept! I would definitely recommend this book for anyone with a mentally ill family member looking for validation of their experience and seeing how it compares to that of others.

The book is very informational and I did actually have an ephiphany while reading it. However, this is the second of her books that I have read and she tends to quote too many professionals for my taste. I found it difficult to pull the information out from all of the doctors' names and their long titles.

Hm.
I believe the word used to describe this book is, "crap".
