Summary
Although growing, medical knowledge of schizophrenia is still substantially incomplete, with some proposing that it is not a distinctive condition at all. As an emeritus professor of biology at McGill University, Chase devoted much of his career to learning about schizophrenia and he presents current knowledge in a work intended for the general reader. Every other chapter is also a recount of family events from 1948 until 1999, focused particularly on his brother Jim who suffered from the disease. It closes with a six page glossary of pertinent terms which appear throughout the text in bold type. Annotation ©2014 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
