Every individual suffers, Kay Redfield Jamison observes again in her An Unquiet Mind, mental illness in each our own way. Often rejected by the psychiatric profession for how it focuses on the personable and not on the scientific, Jamison's work illuminates the human in us all, exploring our foibles in light of our hopes and concerns. Jamison's accompanying depictions, though, sway readers not to look for themselves in these pictures, but at most through similarities in how the pictures get framed, and in what the people in each are themselves working on, comparisons, she suggests, which will are limited to what people do, and not on what they worry. ~ Reviewed by Ray Marsocci
