Good books on schizophrenia

Can anyone recommend any good books on schizophrenia? I feel like I have been given the diagnosis without any information so I’m hungry for any sources of information

Thanks

“Surviving Schizophrenia” was always the staple. It’s pretty factual and cold but it’s worth a read. Most libraries and good bookstores stock it.

If you’ve any questions post them here. Most folk are diagnosed and been through it all before. It’s good you like reading. That is a good thing…I was diagnosed and couldn’t read diddly!

I would recommend “Schizophrenia for Dummies”. It’s a simple, easy to read, comprehensive book that goes in depth on many aspects of schizophrenia. It’s good for both patient and caregiver. It’s not clinical, it’s very easy to understand and it’s actually a good read.

@77nick77 I have that one but for some reason the fact it was written for families etc put me off…
