    Super helpful

    This book was so helpful as I have a sister that is 46 and has had this disorder all her life. There are new advance medications that help people with this disorder become self sufficient in society. They have come a long ways since 40 years ago when my sister was diagnosed. I highly recommend this book to anyone that has family members or friends with this disorder to better understand and to be able to properly help them

    Very Helpful

    As a former foster parent I dealt with the issue of schizophrenia with some of my kids. I wish I had had this book back then. I had no real understanding of this disease until now. This is a very informative and easy to read book.

    "Schizophrenia"

    Schizophrenia is a debilitating mental illness that affects 1 percent of the population in all cultures. It affects equal numbers of men and women, but the onset is often later in women than in men. Schizophrenia is characterized by positive and negative symptoms. Positive symptoms include hallucinations, voices that converse with or about the patient, and delusions that are often paranoid.

    Great For Abnormal Psych Paper

    I bought this book to help me write a paper on Schizophrenia, for my psych class. This book saved my life. It's much better than just info you can find online. It's a credible (paper) source you can add in the bibliography. And I highly recommend that you buy this book.
