the rare book that breaks your life into a before and an after Susannah Cahalan, New York Times bestselling author of Brain on Fire Ron Powers writes eloquently, passionately, and persuasively about the failure to properly treat mental illness in America What makes this book really powerful is Powers s personal story the harrowing, wrenching tale of his two sons wrestling with the unholy demon of schizophrenia Evan Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of Being Nixon Whether Ron Powers is writing about Mark Twain, small town life in the Midwest, the state of television, or crime, his books resonate Now he has written the book he never wanted to tackle about the schizophrenia of his sons and the cruel failures of the American mental health establishment Steve Weinberg, author of Taking on the Trust In telling this gripping and deeply personal story, Ron Powers puts chronic mental illness in the broad context of history, society, and public policy His compelling account helps shake us out of the embarrassment and apathy that have tethered public discourse and lasting action to treat mental illness Despite fitful progress, real and lasting progress and empathy are still so easily tripped up by ignorance, fear, and unease Ron Powers explains why we need to move beyond the stigma that still makes progress difficult, and sometimes impossible The story he tells is not a comfortable one, but it s an important one U.S Senator Patrick Leahy D Vt Ron Powers and his wife never expected to visit the exotic lands of schizophrenia until their two sons became affected A

Very readable and highly recommended E Fuller Torrey, MD, author of Surviving Schizophrenia This is the book that Ron Powers, one of America s most elegant chroniclers, vowed he would never write Too

sanctity of his home, he makes real the toll of mental illness on those who suffer, their families, and the community No One Cares About Crazy People is an unforgettable, insistent call for a

courageous No doubt if everyone were to read this book, the world would change New York Times Book ReviewNew York Times bestselling author Ron Powers offers a searching, richly researched narrative of the social history of mental illness in America paired with the deeply personal story of his two sons battles with schizophrenia.From the centuries of torture of lunatiks at Bedlam Asylum to the infamous eugenics era to the follies of the anti psychiatry movement to the current landscape in which too many families struggle alone to manage afflicted love ones, Powers limns our fears and myths about mental illness and the fractured public policies that have resulted Braided with that history is the moving story of Powers s beloved son Kevin spirited, endearing, and gifted who triumphed even while suffering from schizophrenia until finally he did not, and the story of his courageous surviving son Dean, who is also schizophrenic A blend of history, biography, memoir, and current affairs ending with a consideration of where we might go from here, this is a thought provoking look at a dreaded illness that has long been misunderstood.
