Where is the editor?

by Pamela J on Aug 28, 2014

The subject was interesting but poorly written I thought and very poorly edited. One doctor called a she in one place, a he in another. Disjointed and not very clear which I understand to be part of the disease but I still thought it was poorly written since the writer was a reporter.

Liked book so much I ordered a second copy for family to pass around.


Scary & well written!

by quasar on Dec 1, 2013

She is a journalist so knows how to put together a paragraph. Very well written page- turner about her experience w/ a brain disorder that was misdiagnosed by several prominent neurologists until one finally gave her a simple pencil & paper test. This is a persuasive arguement for universal health care. It cost over one million dollars to diagnose and treat her. A patient w/ no insurance may have been dumped in a state psychiatric hospital and left. Spoiler alert - it has a happy ending.
