This review is from: Henry's Demons: Living with Schizophrenia, a Father and Son's Story (Hardcover)
This book appealed to me as I've recently been working closely with a schizophrenic client, and have been doing some background reading around the illness. I found this to be a very moving book and it was really helpful to read both Patrick and Henry's perspective's on his schizophrenia. It gave me a glimpse into the magical world Henry experiences, and how his illness can at times be seen as a gift, and at others a great burden.
I hope this book will educate those who believe people with schizophrenia are dangerous and should be avoided or feared. The schizophrenic's I've worked with have all been incredibly gentle, creative people, who I've learnt an awful lot from. I wish Henry and Patrick all the very best, and hope this won't be their last writing collaboration together.
