Henry's Demons: Living with Schizophrenia, a Father and Son's Story
Henry's Demons: Living with Schizophrenia, a Father and Son's Story
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest and transparent, 3 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Heart-rendering story of a family's experience of dealing with their son's mental illness, without a shred of self pity. I have a daughter with schizophrenia and it was like reading my own account of the struggles & complexities of not only dealing with the mental illness itself, but the NHS mental health act administration and the professionals involved.....Thank you Patrick.....Without wanting to sound too schumuckzy....I feel your pain!


Digging Up Mother: A Love Story
Digging Up Mother: A Love Story
by Doug Stanhope
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.99

3.0 out of 5 stars or people familiar with Doug Stanhope's work would enjoy this book, 3 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm sure devoted fans, or people familiar with Doug Stanhope's work would enjoy this book, it's very much the autobiography one would expect from this kind of commedian, and although it's very funny (obviously in a dark kind of way) in parts by the last few chapters I found myself not liking him very much and I'm not sure why. Having said that, it did come across as being honest and genuine so all in all a good read

3.0 out of 5 stars Goodish, 8 Jan. 2016

Good little lighthearted average read, won't change your life but ok for the beach, or airport. I expected more but was a bit disappointed. I gave it 3 stars because having watched Ms Visage on the TV I thought she seemed very nice, and behind some of that gruffness quite kind hearted which did come over very well in the book

Great read, lots of empirical data that I actually found fascinating instead of boring as it can be...! Dr Sacks comes across as a very compasionate man

Thank you Deirdre for putting your experience of Schizophrenia down on paper for others to read. It goes a long way to helping me understand my daughter, who also has Schizophrenia. Your a very courageous lady! God Bless
