    1. David and Lisa and Jordi were four star stories for me In high school, I played Dr Alan White in a staged version of the former and had fond memories of the play This is what caused me to read this collection, as well as my persistent interest with the subject matter.All of these stories illustrate the psychiatrist author s passion to compassionately understand his young patients while also championing his belief in the healing power of positive human relationships At times, it seems the author [...]

    2.

    3. This collection of stories is touching, and not as disturbing as you may expect to get a glimpse into a schizophrenic mind I loved that the central theme of the stories, showing therapists giving extra attention and care, helped them to break through and relate to their patients.This is a quick read.
