This book tells the remarkable story of Kurt and his experience
This book tells the remarkable story of Kurt and his experience with schizophrenia.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
This book is a unique read because its main story is about Kurt but he also includes traditional research on
the latest treatments and knowledge of the mental disorder. Through out the book are short stories of other people's
Experiences in battling schizophrenia. It really gets the point across of how case to case specific this disease is.
I enjoyed the variety of information because it allowed me to get a feel of the reality of the disease through
someone's eyes and it informed me more about the disease as Kurt was experiencing it, through his traditional
research. However I did not like the short stories through out the book because although they did give me a
different experience,I felt like it took away from Kurt's story and I sometimes got the stories mixed up with each other.
I think someone should read this book because it widens your knowledge about mental illnesses and schizophrenia
in specific, it will also allow you to get a feel for what they are going through and you wouldn't have to jump to drastic
conclusions. Overall this was a good book.

AMAZING! perspective is awesome!
Having a teenager just diagnosed with schiozphreniform... this book was awesome and inspiring...having had no experience with mental illness, this book was an eye opener. I appreciate how similar his story was to my son's. It's amazing the "paranoia" that is present and clearly the need for meds is continually echoed. I gave my copy to my son and sent another copy to my older boy (who will probably end up being his caretaker eventually) in NY. THANK YOU!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book reminded me of me
I was diagnosed with Schizoaffective disorder-depressive type this year. I'm 17 years old, and this book made me happy to know that I'm not alone. I would recommend it to anyone who has had delusions, especially teens.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
