This is the only time I have bought a book because of the title, I was pleasantly surprised. The book is engaging and is written from the heart. It details the issues of mental illness and the ongoing struggle for sanity and a normal life. "Unhinged" is not a downer or weepy in it's story telling style, but gives an insight into the eternal struggle for people with mental illness trying to go about their day to day lives.

This book was interesting but I would not recommend it to anyone currently dealing with mental illness or with the illness of a loved one. The author has some valid criticism of the mental health system and pharmacology but fails to offer any constructive responsible suggestions. The author seems unclear on concepts of personal responsibly and that all traits in a persons personality cannot be directly attributed to their illness. Also just because someone may be over medicated does not mean that their quality of the life would not be improved by appropriate med management. This book is both judge mental and dangerously dismissive of some very important issues. Approach with caution this book does no offer hope or acceptance
