5.0

I love Anna Spargo-Ryan's novels (and her Tweets), so it is no surprise that I find her memoir fantastic. But love is not quite the right word for this raw, honest, courageous, beautifully written, visceral description of mental illness. It is confronting and at times hard to read - I had to overcome my knee-jerk reaction of "not all doctors" at some of the retellings of terrible interactions with medical practitioners - but I learned things about myself, and perhaps more importantly, about how to better help my patients. Everyone - but particularly GPs, psychologists, psychiatrists, and mental health nurses - should read this book.
