My parents aborted me when I was twenty-six. I was a year short of being the same age as the other great artists like Morrison and Joplin who seemed to die prematurely. But unlike them, I was never known. I was a voice never heard, perceived or understood. But I could always hear myself. Why didn't anyone else, I wonder? Perhaps it was just that mine was a voice no one wanted to hear.

How does it feel to struggle with Schizophrenia? Almost Normal by Ann Kolsrud answers that question in a well written first person account of this debilitating disease. It should be required reading for anyone in the health care industry especially those who treat this disease. However, Ann's book is not just a clinical text suitable only for those professionals who manage the health care of schizophrenics, it is also a book for those who are educators, friends, relatives, and colleagues of those who suffer from schizophrenia. Readers will be fascinated by Ann's story, sympathizing with her struggle to be normal, hoping she will succeed and that she will be able to manage her disease becoming almost normal at last.
