see also[edit]

I dont think "see also" links should be a collection of tangential or related articles. its too subjective,esp with people. why the emphasis on schizophrenics? why not simply other macarthur prized winners? if she is not defined by her mental illness, then perhaps having a bunch of links to other mentally ill people is as much a disservice as a resource. categories and "see also" can too easily be used to skew an article in a certain direction.(mercurywoodrose) (talk) 17:49, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Requesting Scholarly Credential Criticism[edit]

The book "the Centre Cannot Hold" is written from an overtly privileged perspective, the author's bias is omitting the financial details which enable her to achieve the success story that is overcoming schizophrenia. The reality of schizophrenia for the vast majority of it's afflicted is the exact opposite of the reality this book proposes. If there is a scholar with credentials in the field of psychology who has written a constructive review (on this novel) encompassing these issues I have brought to light, it should be included for transparency.

Requesting Biography[edit]

Eyln Saks book "the Centre Cannot Hold" is her memoir, important footnotes of her life in relation to the topic of the article should be included. Currently the article only discusses her academic achievements and omits and personal details which are publicly available. Personally after reading her book I have come to the conclusion that the author is incredulously bias concerning the reality of being a schizophrenic with no support network, financial aid or unlimited psychotherapy. Anyone in the medical field should be able to recognize the romantic implications of this inconsistency. It is of vital importance that we strive to achieve and preserve transparency and equip readers with all knowledge available to them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Oneksons (talkcontribs) 23:17, 10 November 2015 (UTC)
