Review:

This book by Marvin Ross is a powerful resource for anyone looking for answers and insight into the world of mental illness. But it is not something that you pick up and read for pleasure before going to bed.

Ross examines the history of institutions and how people suffering from mental illness have been treated, where we are today with our laws and why, and the search for proper treatment for those who have the disease. Many studies, both past and present, along with statistics and probable causes for the disease are also documented. There is also a chapter on various medications, treatments and what has worked, what has not and why. This book provides the reader with the answers to many questions - including the "whys" about the disease.

More importantly, the author has shown, through studies and statistics, how society is in need of advocates to eliminate the stigma that surrounds mental illness.

A source of comfort is found at the end of the book where there is a list of famous people who have suffered from mental illness and their accomplishments. For anyone who seeks answers, insight, resource material, or just wants to know more about schizophrenia, this is a great book. It has inspired me to be more public about my experiences and to continue to do all that I can to help change laws, regulations, and to eliminate the stigma that goes along with mental illness. -- Schizophrenia Digest, Fall, 2008

Schizophrenia: Medicine's Mystery - Society's Shame by Marvin Ross offers a frank discussion of the "legacy of ignorance" surrounding the disease and how society continues to stigmatize those affected by it. The book also provides a detailed description of schizophrenia itself, including treatment strategies and theories of causation making it a helpful and empowering guide." --Abilities Magazine Issue 77, Winter 2008/09
