Moving and thought-provoking * Sunday Times *
A compelling book that will challenge and comfort all who have strived to make the journey from chaos to clarity * Psychologies *
Quite simply, I love this book for its candour, wisdom and courage. Mistakes are our greatest lessons and other people, wherever we find them, our greatest teachers. As Tanya Byron describes so eloquently, life is about connection. There is nothing else. -- Sally Brampton
Fascinating composite case studies of some of the vulnerable patients [Tanya Byron] encountered at a stage when she 'was often just one chapter ahead of them' * Metro *
Like the best of psychological cases studies, such as Freud's, these read like compelling, crafted fiction ... powerful, vivid and moving * Sydney Morning Herald *
This book is a moving and extremely engaging account of Dr Byron's early days, training as a clinical psychologist. As well as offering profound insights into the human condition it moves with the pace of a thriller. Dr Byron is a great story teller and she has an extraordinary story to tell * Dr Michael Mosley *
Honest and insightful ... This thoroughly compelling book does much to combat the stigma that is still, sadly, attached to mental illness * The Lady *
Soul searching and straight talking * Jewish Chronicle *
