Hidden Valley Road Inside the Mind of an American FamilyThe Scourge of Schizophrenia This frightening and seemingly unfathomable true story is
ABOUT A FAMILY WITH 12 CHILDREN 
a family with 12 children which 6 of the boys The Economics of Agricultural Development develop schizophrenia So much suffering is hard to take in For not onlyid the sick boys endure unbelievable hardships the well were left to take care of themselves Parents of one sick child ignore their healthy children but when there are so many this behaviour is a lot closer to neglect Time and time again reading this I grew angry at the parents The father was never home and the mother acted for the most part as if nothing was happening Both were able to put A Positive Spin On positive spin on horror happening at home and lots of secrets were keptAlong with the family s internal politics the author tells us the history of schizophrenia treatment and how the Galvin family was able to eventually help with learning why and how this terrible illness happens He also addressed how it can be treated in the future and about the many mistakes of the past 35 stars Fascinating readable and Shallow Grave depressing as hell Unfortunately this fell a little short for me in a few waysAt first the hook of this book is enough toraw your attention Just one family with twelve children where half of them have The Pocket Guide to Action diagnoses of schizophrenia When you hear it it s is such a strange and unusual thing that youo not see it as real experiences Kolker s main goal here is to that you Algorithms for Clustering Data (Prentice Hall Advanced Reference Series : Computer Science) do not see it as real experiences Kolker s main goal here is to that to make you see the real impact the illness has on people how it affects them overays and years He intersperses their story with the history of the scientific research into schizophrenia Both stories are interesting and well written but for me both were flawedThe family s story is hampered in ways Kolker cannot really help While there are 14 members of the Galvin family it s uite clear that only 3 spent considerable time with Kolker Many have Made to Crave Action Plan Participants Guide died And it s absolutely understandable why many of the siblings who are not schizophrenic would have had enough of the whole thing and not want to be extensively interviewed but as a reader I kept expecting the story to open up outside of the three women in it except it rarelyid An even bigger obstacle that Kolker cannot help is that the schizophrenic siblings are not generally capable of providing their own point of view as they are suffering not only from their illness but from the serious toll the treatments have taken on them But it is a badly needed counterpoint It is hard to see a story about mental illness that Introduction to African American Studies does not include any voices from the mentally ill I think it could have benefited from of an effort to present to the reader what their experiences were like through research and interviews with other schizophrenic people I certainly would have appreciated it the ill siblings often feel like objects to be managed than people and it often left a bad taste in my mouthI also found that the emphasis on the mother and twoaughters was sometimes too bogged My Lover down with their history and grudges Again these are all entirely understandable but much of the end of the book is made up almost entirely of theaughters attempts to work through their anger from their childhood They have suffered immensely and I am full of sympathy for them but when we Alcohol Addiction dive into their specific ways of coping with these old traumas the book can lose focus It also made me feel weird about the mother Mimi who is seen by theaughters as having prioritized their ill brothers over their own needs and this is generally presented as the factual account We find later that Mimi is rather Mobilizing New York determined not to present her own point of view but itoes make it feel lopsided I cannot imagine what kind of choices she was presented with and choosing to continue to care for her ill sons was certainly a choice that had conseuences but it s unclear what other options this family had Every choice was a Aspects of South African Literature difficult one and relying so heavily on theaughters accounts pulls us out of that impossible situationAnd for the last of my nitpicks it is again no fault of Kolker s but the science part of the narrative is uite interesting but we find ourselves in the sad state at the end of the book where while significant changes in approach and thinking have been made the way we treat schizophrenia has hardly changed at all and it will likely be The Barefoot Girl: A Novel of St. Margaret, Patroness of the Abused decades before those changes come about I think maybe it was my fault as a reader expecting there to be some big shift around the next. The heartrending story of a midcentury American family with twelve children six of themiagnosed with schizophrenia that became science's great hope in the uest to understand the Social Media in Academia diseaseDon and Mimi Galvin seemed to be living the Americanream After World War II Don's work with the Air Force brought them to Colorado where their twelve children perfectly spanned the baby boom the oldest born in 1945 the youngest in 1965 In those years there was an established script for a family like the Galvins aspiration hard work upward mobility omestic ,
Corner but it could also be the way the book is structured and presented Yes I know this has been one of those reviews that is mostly negative even though my feelings on the book are mostly positive but I am confident this book has enough people singing its praises that I feel its important to say them I also like to note that Kolker often refers to those with schizophrenia as mad or insane and those who Orality in Igbo (African) Literature do not have it as sane which was not my favorite There is also a really really really significant amount ofomestic violence and child molestation in this book if those are ifficult topics for you I suspect this book will be Too Much Before my review I just want to say this book left a lump in my throat it was an emotional journey I felt it in my gut and wish I could reach out and support every single one of the Galvin chil The odds of reading two books at the same time where both families have twelve children has to be high That though is there

first the family prospered Ten boys were born in succession followed finally by two girls As the children grew Mimi was a strict organizer priding herself on keeping her family in line or so it appeared Six of the boys would in timeevelop mental illnesses and schizophrenia the main offenderCannot even begin to imagine how one copes with this kind of challenge With great compassion Kolker
