Goodreads | Michelle Vigeant’s review of A Lethal Inheritance: A Mother Uncovers the Science behind Three Generations of Mental Illness

I received this lovely review from a reader on GoodReads. In appreciation I’ve posted with it one of her amazing paintings.

Michelle’s review Aug 10, memoir, nonfiction, psychology, favorites…I wanted to say I really enjoyed this book. I felt it was an engaging mix of memoir and science writing. There was enough memoir that it reads almost like a thriller, but the information mixed in is very detailed and carefully researched and referenced. Some areas of the book are more seamless than others, but I didn’t think it detracted from the point. At 230 pages of actual writing, it’s a quick read.While this is a book that can certainly be read and enjoyed by the masses, those with “holes” or curiosities in their family history will probably walk away with a lot more. I found it helped answer some of my own questions.If people ask me about psychology books to read this is high on my list of recommendations.
