    One thought on “How to Become a Schizophrenic: The Case Against Biological Psychiatry”

    1. Modrow, a self described cured schizophrenic, begins and ends his book with extensive citations of psychiatric studies, but the bulk of the book is an extremely engaging, gritty account of his childhood, growing up in the 1940s and 50s with a somewhat vagrant, impoverished and neglectful family.As a kid, the author establishes himself pretty convincingly as a weirdo outcast, the one making disgusting mud pies, getting in fights, saying bizarre things, hating the attention that he got.He s basica [...]

    4. This was a great book Good writing The story itself was painful at times Modrow is exceptionally open about his experiences with schizophrenia.
