It also summarizes the most up-to-date knowledge available about the biological bases of this disorder. Finally it attempts to give some idea of what it is like to have schizophrenia and what this disorder tells us about the relationship between mind and brain.

"Schizophrenia is the archetypal form of madness. It is a common disorder affecting roughly one in a hundred people (the same number who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis), and has a devastating effect on sufferers and their families." "This book lucidly and accurately describes what schizophrenia is really like, how the illness progresses, and the treatments that can be applied. Frith and Johnstone summarize the findings of the latest research on the biological basis of this disorder. Finally, they explore what this disorder tells us about the relationship between the mind and the brain."--BOOK JACKET.
