Just Like Someone with Mental Illness Only More So - Mark Vonnegut, MD

I'd added this to my TB list some time ago when I'd read or heard a brief review.  It was definitely worth reading.  The author is the son of Kurt Vonnegut.  More importantly, to him, is that he also experience "episodes" in his late teens and again in his early 30's of schizophrenic and biplor mania.  His story tells how he crafted a successful career as a Harvard-educated pediatrican despite his illness and parentage.  I thought it was honest and upbeat and matter-of-fact, a refreshing view of living with a mental illness.
