This was I think my first book tackling one of the most mysterious diseases schizophrenia Mr Kolker explains the ways it was treated in the past in a most accessible way at least I not belonging to a medical profession understood most of it which does not mean I remembered everything as there is a lot of information including names of the doctors and those of the medicamentsMr Kolker took a sad history of one American family the Galvins living in Colorado as the background for his informative non fiction Mimi and Don Galvin had twelve children and six of them boys developed schizophrenia as they grew up These unusual cases six male siblings suffering from this medical condition allowed doctors to do research into the reasons behind schizophrenia which provided a better understanding of itWhat made this story sad for me was not only the cases of this terrible disease but also other forms of abuse and neglect which were hard to read about All in all this is not a book that puts a reader in an upbeat mood but it is definitely worth the read It is written clearly and gives a broad picture of ways to define and cure a disease which terrifies us PS The Gavins seem to be a big family but last year I watched some news on a Polish family consisting of 21 children 2018 plus parents
