520    In this informative and inspiring book the author narrates
       the stories of 12 patients whom he treated during their 
       recovery from serious mental illness. These narratives 
       reveal their common struggles: misdiagnosis, dual-
       diagnosis, impeded access to medication, medication-
       adherence issues, homelessness, employment/unemployment 
       issues, and problems with governmental agencies. They also
       reveal some of the satisfactions of practicing outreach 
       psychiatry: appreciating the patients' resilience, 
       persistence, and talents, and the cooperation of outside 
       service-providers, all of which promote recovery. Each 
       patient's path is unique. Their successes remind us that 
       schizophrenia, paranoia, bipolar illness, and substance 
       abuse need not preclude a productive and satisfying life. 
       Direct quotations from patients demonstrate their 
       awareness of their problems and progress. Patients' 
       acceptance promotes flexibility and creativity from their 
       psychiatrist. Team members provide innovative and targeted
       support. The psychiatrist identifies aspects his 
       interactions with these patients that contributed to his 
       professional development. A unique feature is the 
       documentation of patients' monthly progress for up to 6 
       years. Though no one knows what initiates recovery, this 
       book vividly describes how it does so. For psychiatrists, 
       psychologists, and social workers these are compelling 
       stories of hope and a powerful call to consider outreach 
       psychiatry.
