A Fractured Mind Book Description:

In 1989, Robert B. Oxnam, the successful China scholar and president of the Asia Society, faced up to what he thought was his biggest personal challenge: alcoholism. But this dependency masked a problem far more serious: Multiple Personality Disorder.At the peak of his professional career, after having led the Asia Society for nearly a decade, Oxnam was haunted by periodic blackouts and episodic rages. After his family and friends intervened, Oxnam received help from a psychiatrist, Dr. Jeffrey Smith, and entered a rehab center. It wasn+t until 1990 during a session with Dr. Smith that the first of Oxnam+s eleven alternate personalities-an angry young boy named Tommy-suddenly emerged. With Dr. Smith+s help, Oxnam began the exhausting and fascinating process of uncovering his many personalities and the childhood trauma that caused his condition. This is the powerful and moving story of one person+s struggle with this terrifying illness. The book includes an epilogue by Dr. Smith in which he describes Robert+s case, the treatment, and the nature of multiple personality disorder. Robert+s courage in facing his situation and overcoming his painful past makes for a dramatic and inspiring book.
