an absolute must read

by mcteager on Oct 13, 2008

I bought and read this book when it first came out in 1982, making the times best seller list. I finished this book in 3 days, not being able to put it down and having some late, late nights trying to finish the book, to its conclusion.If the human mind and how it can effect ones life interests you, this is a MUST read. It amazes you, to realize what the mind is capable of, and how seemingly insignificant items in our lives can truely affect us.In the genre of human psychology , this is one book, not to miss...


fascinating and disturbing

by WackoJacko on Apr 4, 2007

This book is a fascinating and disturbing true story of a young man with multiple personality disorder. Life can be cruel for some people; the abuse meted out at a young age to Billy Milligan certainly was and contributed to his 'splitting' into various personalities in order to be able to survive. Interestingly, the separate parts of his personalities were more greatly skilled and able than the original 'core' personality. I found the writing of this biography to be a little clumsy at times and repetitive (though an accurate account) through the middle section, which is why only three stars. However, it is an incredible read and certainly makes you contemplate the difficulties people with mental illness face, most especially from state institutions, the media and the court system. Wherever Billy Milligan is now, I hope he is (they are) copping a better break than he did for much of his life
