Fabulous in many ways!
But those ways are all related to entertainment - this thing is f-ing HYSTERICAL!!!!!
After 5 minutes of reading, i can't decide which I think is most tenuous: the author's grasp of the English language, the author's grasp of psychological concepts, or the author's grasp of reality for thinking for ONE SECOND that this novel is helpful and/or accurate!
Ok, strictly in my opinion, the broad 'definitions' are nonsensical at best and dangerously inaccurate at worst. It scares me to think that anyone might rely on what this person writes. No references, no sources, etc etc etc. are the least of the problems with what I read.
That said, on to the good stuff! At one point, ADHD is called "Attention Deficit Hypertension Disorder," and the whole description is bizarre..... but that's NOTHING compared to the section on schizophrenia (which, the author claims, has "astounded" mental health experts for years - really?).
The meager list of symptoms includes: hallucinations and/or hearing voices. Sigh. Last time I checked, hearing voices IS a hallucination!
But the best, most fabulous is the other list of what to look for to detect schiz: "laughing for no apparent reason" is one, ok pretty funny, and one is "CONSTANT MUTTERING DURING PERIODICALS"! What?! Does that mean the person mutters while perusing magazines? WTF !!
To truly appreciate the feel of this book, I would recommed digging out instructions to assembling some technical device or piece of furniture that were clearly written by someone for whom English is not their primary (or secondary or maybe tertiary) language.
Wow. I'm astounded!
