  1. Richard McLean Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Recovered, Not Cured: A Journey Through Schizophrenia book, this is one of the most wanted Richard McLean author readers around the world.

  2. I got and read this book after doing an search for firsthand accounts of the mental illness i suffer from schizophrenia i was scared for years to do this because hearing from books about the symptoms of schizophrenia is a sobering reminder of how much it can suck for me myself i also fear that i have relatively fringe views on life and society and that just cus someone suffers from the same disorder as me might not mean that i could really relate to them yet this proved to be a good move for me [...]

  3. I stumbled accidentally on this book Running a search through the online database at a local library branch, the title popped up on the screen I cross referenced it with the opinions of other readers from and decided it d be an interesting overview of this incredible disease schizophrenia I found out after checking the book out that it won the Australian Book of the Year for 2004, which intrigued me further Having read it, I am also of the opinion that it deserves the award The book is short and [...]

  4. Not a favourite, but it made for an interesting read It is quite unique in its treatment of the topic area, in that illustrations help to communicate the development of the disorder and effectively show the discord Schizophrenia yields The fact that it is written from the authentic perspective of someone with Schizophrenia makes it a book I would recommend to those interested in mental illness, especially those suffering from Schizophrenia The purpose of raising awareness and the inclusion of he [...]

  5. Helpful in understanding psychosis and schizophrenia I appreciate the author s memory, and he wrote this book to help others with mental illness seek help The reading was tedious at times, yet well worth it I think this is a description of many with mental illness from page 136 I am forever on the verge of finding the secrets of the universe, yet they never manifest I love that the author is leading a productive life with few effects from his mental illness I love that he discusses pros and cons [...]

  6. Great illustrations Very slim book and doesn t go the distance enough to stand up with other books by psychiatric survivors, that are change makers It is a story of a youthful view of how a bisexual artist gets bullied by the society, medicalised, and tries to escape the discrimination, but cannot, so ends up monitoring himself by popping pills on occasions when overwhelmed and isolated.I had this book recommended to me, by an RMIT tutor Most books that even slightly criticise the Australian psy [...]

  7. This slim volume is incredibly affecting Mr McLean s account of his psychosis and delusions is both frightening and fascinating In stark language he chronicles how his mind worked or didn t while his schizophrenia was worsening, undiagnosed and untreated He heard cryptic messages in intercom announcements, thought license plates held special meanings for him to decipher, and was convinced the entire world was involved in a conspiracy against him Voices screamed profanity at him from just outside [...]

  8. I was interested in learning about schizophrenia, specifically the thoughts, and actions, how it affected life This gave me that insight, it was alot of the same stuff messages and paranoia but I guess that is what schizophrenia is If you interested in this topic i would totally recommend it.

  9. very informativeif you or a loved one have been diagnosed or just acting strangely others telling you this is a must read very short could probably read in one day or two took me awhile since i only read at night in bed and lately have been too tired to stay awake hahaha

  10. A very intriguing book about what its like to live with paranoid schizophrenia and the recovery process It is really an eye opening read.

  11. RNC was very helpful for me Much of what the author has dealt with resonates with the life Michael has lived It also has given me some hope that a better outcome is still out there.

  12. Richard McLean is brave enough to tell his story and give others a taste of what it is like to suffer with this debilitating disease He gives a lot of details that show how it affects his daily life both before and after diagnosis I like the illustrations he includes of his artwork during the time, and the blog posts by others I also like how he points out he was having typical symptoms at different points in his story What is amazing to me is how long he was able to function while the disease w [...]

  13. I read this book as research for a story I wrote for my HSC English Ext 2 subject I was writing about a character who had schizophrenia and reading this first hand experience was a great help to my character development It was confronting, upsetting and brutally honest Something that I would not normally read, as I do not usually like biographies or autobiographies or anything non fiction to be honest, but I m glad I picked this one up.

  14. Good read Though it has little less content on recovery the main point here is the patient caught self awareness and awareness of something s wrong.I think this awareness of normal and not so normal mental states helps faster recovery.

  15. Although the author doesn t go into a lot of depth this book gave a lot of helpful information about mental illness and his process to recovery.
