Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In this book Clive describes in remarkable detail a rich, complex and bizarre set of delusions, hallucinatory voices and images. For much of the time covered by the book he is marvelously, wonderfully, hilariously, fantastically or spectacularly deluded in sustained periods of immersion in the psychosis of paranoid schizophrenia. He generally gets carried away and enjoys his delusions of grandeur, but it is a wonder he did not die from misadventure. Clive, is very playful at times and imaginative in his thinking and also shows great mental strength and resourcefulness. Indeed, these last two attributes may inspire many schizophrenics and non-schizophrenics reading this book. The confidence and certainty of his delusions, along with his innate tenacity and robustness, gives him great courage and stamina.

As well as schizophrenia Clive also writes about his exciting six months in Africa which might have deserved a short book of their own if they were not in this one. As a fellow paranoid schizophrenic with a PhD, secret work and an autobiography focusing on schizophrenia under my belt, I feel some considerable affinity with Clive, but recognize his memoir of schizophrenia is the superior work, though to be fair it lacks detail about Clive's ongoing psychosis and ultimate recovery after the end of the main story. Overall, I think it is the best memoir of schizophrenia I have read, and I have read quite a few. Clive's work is also a mine of information, with many footnotes, and is written with considerable care and effort. Schizophrenia is an imagination disorder and above all this book is a brilliant creation of the schizophrenic imagination.

What is it like to experience mental illness? Looking for Prince Charles’s Dog answers that question by taking the reader on a most extraordinary journey of discovery. Autobiographical accounts of schizophrenia are few and far between, but Clive’s intelligence, intellect and vivid memory have enabled him to recount in full technicolour, the inside story in all its confusion, dilemma and delusion, clearly demonstrating the nature of the beast that is schizophrenia. He shows remarkable insight enabling him to create a work of exceptional quality. Clive has chosen not to recall his experiences in a detached reflective manner, but boldly from the word go, the reader is sucked into madness with the author. You are taken across the line from genius to lunacy and back again, and challenged to open your mind and re-examine personal beliefs. This is the road least-travelled which the reader is privileged to join in all its complexities. An unconventional tale which is compelling, perplexing and astounding and one which should be compulsory reading for all mental health professionals.

Other questions answered in this book include:

Why do people with mental illness end up homeless?

Why don’t people with mental illness just take medication to get better?

Why would a grown man be seen pecking at a discarded hamburger on a pavement?

Why do many sufferers of mental illness kill themselves?

Format: Paperback
I once met the author in my home town and remembering him telling me about the search for Prince Charles's dog, the memory must have stayed with me as several years later I came across a local music venue holding a gig to promote Dr. Clive Travis's book which was I have to say upon purchasing was a remarkably interesting read, taking the reader on a travelogue to Africa and all around England in addition to other countries and a trip through the mind also. It's a journey that takes you through what went on during the author's state of mind, how he thought, the way he was treated by the medical profession which hopefully has got better at understanding when it comes to prescribing for patients. You never quite know just what's round the corner on his journey, but left hoping its good and for the best four our journeyman who shares his experiences with interest, verisimilitude and sometimes humorous anecdotes, occurrences and the characters met along the way. I can recommend the book as being of interest to people in practice and learning of mind conditions in addition to anyone wanting a read that takes you on both a physical and mental journey.
There is nothing new about good well written story's to tell but the way this journey is told certainly holds up as a new way of thinking and true life story telling. Was Prince Charles reunited with his missing dog? Join the search and learn the truth... (M)Truth

What a page turner!

Brilliantly written by an extremely intelligent author. He explains (in a most entertaining manner - it's a real 'pageturner') what it's like to have one of the most 'dreaded' diagnoses of mental illness. Highly recommended!
