Cameron West discovers, while in his thirties that he has 24 distinct personalities. This is an account on his efforts to understand his disease and heal from it.
One of the best books I've ever read. I was desperate for something to read whilst on a long trip and picked this up at a drug store, more of less out of desperation. Once I started it, I couldn't put it down. Dr. West's account of how he came to terms with his multiple selves was fascinating and inspirational and riveting.
This book is incredible. Cameron West is, himself, incredible. The whole thing is hugely amazing and the book is worth your time.
This is an incredible book about a man with Multiple Personalities. From the cover...Meet Davy, a four-year-old boy with harrowing memories of sexual abuse; Clay, an eight year old who longs to own a scooter; Switch, an aggressive, angry child who harms himself; Dusty, a sweet and shy twelve-year-old girl who loves to cook; and Bart, a fun-loving ladies' man-all unique individuals with their own feelings and memories, and one thing in common: they live, along with 19 others, in the mind of Dr. Cameron West. In First Person Plural, West tells of "my guys." and his struggle facing Dissociative Identity Disorder, formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder. As the people who haunt his mind insist on telling their story, West desperately hangs on to the slender thread that connects him to his wife and son and some semblance of normal life. Heatwrenching, humorous, and ultimately hopeful, this story will make you stand in awe of the power of the mind to protect itself and cheer for West as he battles to gain control of his life.
Excellent book to help explain Dissociative Identity Disorder - DID (Multiple Personalities)thru the life of Cameron West. Not technical, very compassionate. Easy read....holds you to the very end. Could not put this book down!!!! Nothing like Sybil!! Not graphic!!
