"A stunningly unvarnished portrait of one of America's most private public families..." --People "Searching and fearless." --Kevin Cullen, The Boston Globe "I, am personally, really proud of Patrick. I think what he's doing is consistent with everything that my family has stood for...he needed to start that journey by telling his own story of mental illness. I think it's noble, and it's heroic, and I have nothing but admiration for him." --Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on "Ring of Fire" radio "[Patrick Kennedy] has undeniably turned his fame toward a good cause -- of raising understanding about the prevalence of mental illness and addiction in our society, and the need to help our brothers and sisters who cannot help themselves. There are easier ways to make money than speaking out honestly about one's own life, and we admire the courage Mr. Kennedy has shown in discussing these difficult issues." --Editorial Board, Providence Journal "Fascinating ... This book is a must-read, not only for those suffering from mental health and substance use disorders, but also for the professionals who treat them and for those who pay for that treatment." --Dr. George Koob, Director National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, Clinical Psychiatry News "Kennedy's eye-opening book is a public call for action. "A Common Struggle" also is a call for understanding, not only for those with mental illness, but for all those affected by the mostly misunderstood, and often devastating, illness. As Kennedy points out, no one is immune from mental illness." --Wichita Times "His new memoir, which recounts the troubles he and his famous family experienced, will help move the needle when it comes to public policy regarding mental health and substance abuse.... it shine[s] a needed light on a serious problem." --Editorial Board, The Oklahoman "If your readers do nothing else today, they should buy or order this remarkable book ... I always admired Kennedy's passion and willingness to fight not only on mental illness issues but also such topics as gay rights and gun control. This book should enhance your understanding and appreciation of the work he did in Congress and the ambitious mental health initiatives he is leading now. And for the happiness of his marriage and fatherhood..." --Charlie Bakst, on WPRI TV blog "I think Patrick Kennedy is quite courageous for bringing this book out. ... What he is doing is really the equivalent of what Betty Ford did when she exposed her own alcoholism." --Dr. Thomas McLelland, former deputy director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, on MSNBC "Patrick Kennedy should receive a profile in courage award for his book, A Common Struggle..." -- Dan Rea, CBS-TV BostonReseña del editor:
Patrick J. Kennedy, the former congressman and youngest child of Senator Ted Kennedy, opens up about his personal and political battle with mental illness and addiction for the first time.
