Dr. Chase asks the fundamental questions about schizophrenia and, in exceptionally clear language, explains the technical obstacles to answering them. The chapters about his brother are poignant, often achingly so, making it clear why answers are needed so urgently. -- Andrew Shaner, M.D., author of Overcoming Addictions: Skills Training for People with Schizophrenia Schizophrenia is a physical disorder mainly affecting the brain and profoundly afflicting life as a human being. In this book-a perspective on hope for the future-Ronald Chase elegantly interweaves a subjective family story of his brother's life with schizophrenia and an objective review of the scientific literature on this condition. -- Akira Sawa, M.D., Ph.D., Director and Professor, Johns Hopkins Schizophrenia Center, Department of Psychiatry, Johns Hopkins Medicine Many scientists and physicians could have written this extraordinarily insightful book, but few choose to share their compassion and anguish for their brothers who have experienced schizophrenia. Ronald Chase describes his efforts to understand an un-understandable brain disease in a way that compels the reader to join him in a plea for more research and less stigma. -- Irving I. Gottesman, author of Schizophrenia Genesis: The Origins of Madness I do not know of another book that gives an account of the course of schizophrenia across an entire lifetime. Chase's technique of alternating chapters between the science and the personal to tell the story of his brother's illness uniquely melds two equally important but very different perspectives on this terrible illness. The result is a book that is compelling, heartbreaking, and hopeful all at the same time. -- Francis Mark Mondimore, M.D., Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Johns Hopkins Medicine, and author of Bipolar Disorder: A Guide for Patients and Families
When bright lives are derailed by schizophrenia, bewildered and anxious families struggle to help, and to cope, as scientists search for causes and treatments that prove elusive. This title sets out to discover the facts about the disease and better understand what happened to his older brother, Jim, who developed schizophrenia as a young adult.
