    Hardcover ´ Death Grip ePUB Ø death download, grip pdf, Death Grip PDFEPUB Note I received a free advanced reading copy of this book from the publisher through the goodreads first reads program This has no influence over my rating or reviewThis is perhaps a four star book if it were cleaned up a little Samet is a surprisingly good writer and his story is an interesting one but this book is in need of a good proof reader There were uite a few simple mistakes especially near the end I don't read a lot of ARCs so I don't know if that's standard and forgivable In addition Samet refers to the past and future in strange places in the narrative which doesn't always have to be confusing but in this case it is There are a lot of climbing stories in this book and therefore a lot of climbing lingo which I wasn't familiar with and were poorly or not at all defined A glossary would've been helpful but I also found most of the details of the climbs uninteresting Sometimes it felt like Samet was place name dropping and boasting as he k

    Hardcover ´ Death Grip ePUB Ø death download, grip pdf, Death Grip PDFEPUBA very gripping read especially in part 2 I love the richness of the language and complexity of ideas it's not written in your typical fluffy cotton candy fashion I also never realized how addictive drugs like Xanax and Klonopin are and have family members on them I'm going to recommend this to them

    Hardcover ´ Death Grip ePUB Ø death download, grip pdf, Death Grip PDFEPUBA hard core rock climber experiences crippling anxiety and then psychiatrists hook him on benzodiazepine drugs to cope That's when the real fun begins This would be a great premise for a fiction novel but this is all true And the bonus Samet is an excellent writer As the book goes on it increasingly becomes a page turner

    Hardcover ´ Death Grip ePUB Ø death download, grip pdf, Death Grip PDFEPUB3 22 14 I did like a lot about the book and I identified with some of the addiction stuff and with a lot of the depression low self worth mental illness struggles he describes BUT his tone was often haughty and along with the unnecessary use of three dollar words it made it often hard to feel any deep sympathy for or empathy with him and therefore identifying with and learning from his experience because he often ends up sounding like a snotty overprivileged brat He may very well NOT be any of those things maybe he just didn't have a very good editor But it's also an attitude I'm not unfamiliar with among the better male rock climbers I've been around I don't know if they have the attitude before they

    Hardcover ´ Death Grip ePUB Ø death download, grip pdf, Death Grip PDFEPUBA very personal narrative of the short comings of psychiatric care through the eyes of a professional climber Specifically the results of misguided benzodiazepine prescription and treatment and the resultant snow balling of inappropriate diagnosis in lieu of it Climbing metaphors end up being not trite but perhaps the only appropriate personification here in Samet's vivid descriptions of finding out just how much of a dangerous and nearly fatal position he was put in by those whom we trust with out best interests at heart

    Hardcover ´ Death Grip ePUB Ø death download, grip pdf, Death Grip PDFEPUBIn this well written memoir Matt Samett retraces a lifetime of climbing mental health troubles and benzo addiction Like Mr Samett’s life the book is a rollicking tale filled with extraordinary accomplishment but always undermined by his struggle with mental healthEventually he discovers that some of the cures can be worse than the disease and chronicles the awakening that allows him to escape from “benzo madness”A cautionary tale on the risks associated with modern psychiatry

    Hardcover ´ Death Grip ePUB Ø death download, grip pdf, Death Grip PDFEPUBEating disorder memoirs are so unsettling sometimes because even though the person is writing from a reflective place where they're recovered to some great extent this weird energy around food and body size lingers in their words Like you'll be reading about some crazy diet debacle and the narrator voice will say something


  8. Elizabeth Holter Elizabeth Holter says:

    Hardcover ´ Death Grip ePUB Ø death download, grip pdf, Death Grip PDFEPUBThis is a fascinating and painful read Fascinating because Mr Samet is an expressive writer who is reporting from inside the war zone of the drugged mind Painful because he is describing a medical culture in the thrall of drugs that alter neurochemistry not to mention many other types of body chemistry His description of the inpatient affective disorders unit at Johns Hopkins is a modern version of Nurse Ratched's ward in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest The story is a cautionary tale to be heeded by doctors social workers therapists and parents in short by anyone tempted to believe that drugging replaces the hard work of learning to cope with the hand life deals out Three stars only because it needs editor

    Hardcover ´ Death Grip ePUB Ø death download, grip pdf, Death Grip PDFEPUBI read this for a first person account of withdrawal from anti anxiety medications since I have family members on Klonopin and Ambien but the book ended up sucking me in on so many levels Part II where you get an inside look at the climbing world and climbers' strange eating disorders climborexia is fascinating The book builds and momentum offering astounding insight into the way society is pathologizing sadness stress and discomfort I'm still haunted by the glimpses of life inside a psychiatric ward The end ties it all together in a masterful and hopeful conclusion

    Hardcover ´ Death Grip ePUB Ø death download, grip pdf, Death Grip PDFEPUBI am both a climber and a victim of psychotropic drugs so this book really hit home for me Samet is a talented writer and he relays his experience in a way that summons compassion from the reader and opens the eyes of those who have no idea how dangerous prescription drugs can be I would recommend this book to anyone who is considering psychotropic drugs as taking them could very well launch the user into a world of hell It's a sobering reminder that we should not put our full faith in the medical establishment or those who cl
