      “It is very difficult to put down this book once you read the first line, ‘How long should a love affair last?’ Indeed, how many books of science start with a declaration of love and end with a poem with the pathos of a T.S. Eliot?”



      Joven R Cuanang, M.D.

      Professor Emeritus

      Neurosciences

      UERMMMC




      “A wonderful fusion of science and storytelling, this book deserves a place in the libraries of all psychiatrists, young and old. I wish we had this during residency training. Bloody brilliant!”



      Melissa Paulita Mariano, M.D. MSc
      President, Philippine College of Psychopharmacology



      This is a remarkable book by a first-time author written in a personal narrative style that is quite compelling. A 50-year love affair with Psychiatry is out in the open and for good reasons. One experiences a gamut of emotions reading through the pages: joy in the infectious mood of the hypomanic patient’s flight of ideas; confusion in the schizophrenic patient’s looseness of association; unease in the accusations of someone with delusions of jealousy; sadness in the tragedy of the Alzheimer’s patient. Or gnashing of teeth upon the death of a patient hanging from a tree. It is hard to imagine any other branch of Medicine that can evoke such varied emotions. Psychiatry has that power. In the midst of these cornucopias of vicarious thrills, there is the presence of William Shakespeare whose brilliant psychological insights are so awesome that is tempting to declare him, possibly, in the author’s view, the “First Psychiatrist.”
