This is a good book for anyone interested in psychology for it is a true biography of a schizophrenic woman. The first half of the book was wonderful, well written,interesting, and filled with facts about the instutional world ,as well as, observations on the patient. The second half of the book was dissapointing as it became repetitive and reflected all the details of the biographers notes. A good story does not include every minutia and the exacting detail becomes boring as one is taken through the day by day life of the schizophrenic woman over and over again.
