"Dr. Neppe's book is one of the most interesting books I have read in the past five years.
I must recommend this book to any medical sales representative, medical student and physician.
This book takes us to the core of what Medicine is about: to listen to what the patient is saying,
not only with their word, but with their acts and the cry of help that their mind is doing.
Great job Dr. Neppe."
"I am still enjoying your book. I think it is really super. Bathtubs will never look the same again"

"An extremely interesting exploration into mental illness, brain medications and social dilemmas. The reader becomes enthralled in the patients' stories making it more entertaining to learn about medications and treatments.
Readers of all backgrounds and educational levels may find this book fascinating and educating."
Felice Keller , Book Reviewer for Jewish Transcript, 2/15/99
"I confess that I was so taken with this book that I read it from cover to cover.
This is an entertaining and instructive book that can bring hope and help to patients afflicted by moderate or severe mental illness or seizure disorders; it can also bring understanding and relief to family members who are impacted by their suffering and struggle.
Cry the Beloved Mind will also be of interest to medical students, residents and practicing physicians who will welcome a good read based on solid science.
I know that I as a primary care physician found much to capture my interest.."
"Dr Neppe weaves real medical accounts…that makes absorbing the material not only palatable but actually very enjoyable. …a compassionate, respectful, self-help book allowing patients, …families and the general reader to understand what doctors are doing when using powerful mind-modifying medications such Prozac, BuSpar and Tegretol for depression, seizures or other conditions. …highly recommended for all to read."

FROM BARNESANDNOBLE.COM RANKING 5 STARS OUT OF 5."Dr. Neppe gives voice to those of us, long silent and misunderstood.
I'm proud to be both patient and friend to the author, who has captained my personal voyage of hope."

"Cry the Beloved Mind: A Voyage of Hope educates by fascination.
"WONDERFUL BOOK, EASY READ
"She reads it like the talmud."
A husband about his wife.
"That's what your book really does well.
The thinking behind the drugs and the decisions. We really do not hear this as patients."
"Even though I am not a patient, I recognize people like this in the book.
I was surprised to find this so interesting that I want to read it again. I'm ordering four copies to distribute to friends."
"Please feel free to use the following statement about your wonderful book, "Cry The Beloved Mind"
I recommend this book without qualification; Dr. Vernon Neppe has written one of the most important works dealing with brain medications and social dilemmas ever penned. This book has helped me understand that I am not alone, and that there is hope for a complete recovery. Dr. Neppe has the rare ability to view his patients with both clinical detachment as well as human beings, with fears, anguish, worry, terror and everything in between. This wonderful volume should be required reading for anyone with curiosity or concerns. "Cry The Beloved Mind" will change more than minds; it will change LIVES!"
"Today I finished the book! I read it literally from cover to cover and read every word (even the ones I was given permission by you to skim over or omit). WOW! I took it to work today, and when my ½ hour lunch break was over, I told everyone to leave me alone as I was at a really exciting part of my book and couldn't put it down. When they saw what the book was about they found it incredulous that there was an “exciting part” – just before your breakthrough treatment. I really don’t have the words to express what I felt about this book. Every psychiatrist should be urged to read it – and it should be a compulsory text book for doctors. I am SO conscious of what medicines I put in my mouth and now watch what liquid I have my calcium tablets with!! It is so encouraging to think that so many people with the illnesses you described can be got back to normal. I will always keep my personally inscribed book."
