Coping with Schizophrenia. I can’t remember the authors, there are two though.

“The Center Cannot Hold” by Elyn Saks is probably the most positive one I’ve seen.

Both autobiographies by Mark Vonnegut, Md. “Just Like Someone Without Mental Illness, But More So”, and "The Eden Express…"
Eleanor Longden’s "Learning From the Voices in my Head"
Jacob Glidewell’s "Different Shade of Normal…"
I tend to like the true-life accounts more than the clinical books.
Another, though, that I loved, but has to be read with a grain of salt, so to speak, is Paris William’s “Rethinking Madness…” I caution that this one supports a more shamanistic view of schizophrenia, which can be triggering to some, including myself. What I like about it, though, is the supportive calming approach it has with many explanations that made sense to me.

I will get these two. Thank you @Hedgehog

I also like the first person books. Arnhild Lauveng’s “A Road Back From Schizophrenia” (translated to English) is one of my favorites.

My brother bought me “Eden Express” for my birthday last year, right before I was diagnosed.
