More About This Book

Overview

My memoirs are rather slanted. They include only the successes and none of the failures. Clinical vignettes that illustrate the healing process follow my career from a medical internship at Georgetown, through a fellowship in Psychiatry at Boston's Beth Israel Hospital. The discovery of the warming point in schizophrenia at D.C. General was followed by the almost miraculous healing of several thousand acutely ill schizophrenics during two years as Chief Psychiatrist. There is a detailed case history of the full recovery of a chronic schizophrenic considered untreatable. Patients with drug-resistant suicidal depression were successfully treated through a unique form of psychosurgery.

"Couldn't put it down, a page turner. The book is well written, interesting, and above all full of love. Publication is imperative so that what you did at D.C. General to help unravel the mistery of schizophrenia will not be forgotten, and that new generations of psychiatrists will be inspired to follow where you have led."

-Francis F. Barnes, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry at Georgetown University School of Medicine, and former Chief Psychiatrists at Sibley Memorial Hospital.

"Absolutely fascinated by your book. Did not put it down until I had read the entire book and highlighted so much of it. So thoughtful and so beautiful that it needs to be shared with as many people as possible."

-Richard Miller, ESQ., Well known trial lawyer in Kansas City, MO.

"Fascinated with your book. It's spell binding."

-Mrs. Patricia Normile, Professor of Economics at Montgomery College in Maryland.

"Very well written, flow easily and interestingly and is informative, uplifting and encouraging. A humane work."

-Mr. Thomas Cormick, West Point grad and Federal Career Officer.
