really liked it

3.5. This book does a really good job of using the Galvin family’s story to illustrate what a struggle it is to deal with schizophrenia while shedding light on the science (art?) of treatment and lack thereof over the decades. I had a bit of a tough time following the science, but I think the author did the best he could to make the info accessible for a general audience. The whole thing is insightful and heartbreaking in more ways than one. Here’s hoping for more breakthroughs in prevention since they can’t seem to figure out how to treat it well.
