SUMMARY The Locked WardAtients An educational book but also one filled with compassionate stories of patients O Donnell as encountered The stories within this book are written in order to educate readers about what really Progressive Consumption Taxation happens within a mentalospital and to rid the stereotypes upon it I would recommend this book to anyone Stories from movies and TV shows portray psychiatric Saint Paul, Apostle of Nations hospitals as those filled with violence and evil However O Donnell s real experience and stories shed light upon the true care and compassion theyold instead These stories The Clothier Natural Jumping Method holdumour and they Two Bunnykins out to Tea holdappiness as well as stories which really educate upon the different mentalities that the mentally disabled Falling for Sakura have Through reading this book mind sets upon the usual stereotype of psychiatricospitals are bound to change along with a new found education upon mental disorders A decent memoir sad in parts funny in parts It is a bit elementary in its discussion regarding mental illness but it is a good informative book for those not very familiar with psychiatry I found some of the Teach Me humorous bits to be off putting as well as the Scottish dialect which can be difficult to discern Rant about losing books reviews and the culpability of Librarians At least in my eyes I read this book rated it a 3 and reviewed it It s an ok book but you could see why the author was an orderly rather than a psychiatrist Now the book is gone from my shelves No point in asking about this in Feedback as the mods always pretend that it s just the first time they veeard of such a thing and to send all info to Support Who mostly don t reply But on the odd occasion they do they also pretend that this is a one off and send them all info whereupon they can t do anything if they even bother to replyI ve always wondered Monty how books disappear I vead uite a few go Sometimes I can prove it as I ad exported the shelves I am assured by mods that it can t possibly be librarians combining and renaming books and authors but I think it is and they know it too There are some really good and conscientious librarians on GR I ope I m one of them although I only correct books and authors from my shelves these days but there are an awful lot that just race through corrections and combining in order to get their names on Top Librarians They know they are doing shit too otherwise why would they Coming Home (Chesapeake Diaries have private profiles and not allow messages from non friends or reply to ueries in the Librarians Group on their data changes The Librarians group seems dominated by almost a cliue of mean girls who think they are the arbiters of book data What they say goes Even when they are really wrong I know Iave a bee in my bonnet about Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Robotic Edition where all people The Writers Handbook 1999 have been replaced by robots so that teachers will be able to teach this book withoutaving to deal with the race uestion of why Jim is such a Rock Hounding out of Bishop humble slave friend to the two preteen white boys The Librarians say that the book is similar enough to Mark Twain s original to be combined Mark Twain would turn inis grave at The Long-Legged Fly having the whole theme ofis book perverted by White teachers who don t want children to know that Blacks were treated as goods and chattels and not people And by combining this book the Librarians collude in this But that isn t the only book that the Librarians in their infinite wisdom Beneath the Surface (Reluctance, have screwed up by no means there are publishers they don t like and whose books they marked as Not A Book like Books LLC who aren t a proper publisher because all they do is reprints what do they think constitutes the vast majority of Penguins catalogue and because they collate Wikipedia and other articles in book form thus saving some of us a lot of time and effort and therefore money by doing the research for us Today I discovered that my edition of Genet s The Maids aka Les Bonnesad been replaced by an Arabic one so I went to look at the Genet book page Some librarian The Service had combined not just all editions of The Maids but included uerelle of Brest as if they were the same book Not only that but the top titlead now been altered to uerelle because that s what it s called on Kindle Next thing it will be Pride by Jane Austen and The Merchant by Shakespeare All the ualifications you need to be a librarian is to Enlightened (Red Flags, have 50 books on your shelves say youave read the librarians manual even if you Doctor Who and the Planet of the Daleks haven t No one can prove anyoneas read any book on GR and then you are free to carefully correct or screw around the book data as much as you like I Cable Deadpool Vol. 1: If Looks Could Kill have good Librarian friends in particular Super Librarian Lisa Vegan whoas sorted out many problems for me But she can t sort this one out The answer is obviously only to A Pucked Holiday Outtake (Pucked, have really conscientous people being Librarians and sorting out the data butow do you sort the wheat from the chaffSo ere I find yet another book disappeared and importantly along with it the review and comments I can replace the book I don t need a review to know what I thought of the book but I can never ever replace friends comments that formed a conversation and that makes me exceedingly cross And I do blame
the Librarians Because I onestly don t think it s GR staffLibrarians Because I Option Trading Tactics with Oliver Velez Course Book with DVD honestly don t think it s GR staff removing renaming or otherwise screwing up book titles so who else could it beRant over Until the next time Mentalealth fascinates me and despite not being a stranger to mental ealth issues myself I m always on the unt for new reading material This particular book ad been on my list for a good while and I admit I couldn t wait to jump right into thisFor the most part this book was a decent insight into mental illness which is written by
