I saw the movie version of this book before I read the book. The book is much better
and I am qualified to write this last review because I , too, am a paranoid schizophrenic.
I have been disabled for well over 30 years but only diagnosed since 1980. It is good
that the book was written to help people understand the affliction and that ps strikes
anyone at anytime. Fortunately, I am in remission but it wasn't easy working and being
married without knowing what was going on with my head. The movie fictionalizes the
ps but it does a good job of what the person goes through. The book successfully describes Nash's life. Even though I am not a Nobel prize winning mathematician I did
work as a professional organic chemist and after diagnosis donated 131 pints of whole
blood. So disabled does not mean unable. Hopefully the great acting job in the movie
should inform everyone about the torture the person goes through and how his or her
loved ones suffer right along with him or her.
