It is really hard to write a memoir because it is someone‚Äôs story so I often will rate it on writing style and how interesting the story is. Unfortunately, I feel so the story was not very interesting and was just kind of matter-of-fact.

So well written. So personal and so terrifying. It makes me wonder how many people are suffering from psychosis that could actually be treatable. That's the scary part. Bravo to Ms. Cahalan for putting her story out there.

Very interesting and I loved the authors articulation of struggles with brain fog, chronic illness and her feeling disconnected from her own self due to her disease. A very informative book as well when you consider that her diagnosis/prognosis may have been extremely different a few years earlier.
