    I read the 4th edition of this book, and it is by far the most amazing and informative book I have read. I highly recommend this for anyone who has a loved one with this illness. It will help you gain so much knowledge and understanding. Every page is packed with facts and useful information from an author who is very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject, has a sister who has the illness, and has done extensive research about it. I have a brother with this illness and I just got the new 6th edition for our family and am looking forward to reading it!!!

    Invaluble to loved ones living with schizophrenia. Very highly recommended.

    The book is written to apply to professionals, laymen and loved ones living with schizophrenia. As a layman living with a paranoid schizophrenic loved one I cannot recommend it too highly. Although some of the contents are more directed to professionals in the field, it is very easily understood and applicable to those of us living with the disease of schizophrenia.

    An excellent book for all those coping with mental illness

    This book is an outstanding guide, not only for individuals with mental illness, but also for their family members. It is very educational, helpful, and sensitive to the subject of this devastating illness. I am glad I found this book-it helped me cope with the many struggles I have experienced living with a relative with this illness.
