  • Gives the facts about Schizophrenia - an illness much discussed but widely misrepresented in media, literature, and film
  • Explains the truth about one of the most fascinating and devastating mental illnesses: patients hear voices in their heads and hold bizarre beliefs
  • Accessible accounts of cutting edge research
  • Detailed descriptions of patients and their histories

  
Schizophrenia is the archetypal form of madness. Schizophrenia is a common disorder and has a devastating effect on sufferers and their families-patients typically hear voices in their heads and hold bizarre beliefs. The schizophrenic patient presented to the public in sensational press reports and lurid films bears little resemblance to reality of the illness. This book describes what schizophrenia is really like, how the illness progresses, and the treatments that have been applied. It also summarizes the most up-to-date knowledge available about the biological bases of this disorder. Finally it attempts to give some idea of what it is like to have schizophrenia and what this disorder tells us about the relationship between mind and brain.
