comprehensive and illuminating

I have started reading a few books on the subject, and this one complements the others. Positives/novelties include various experiences with the illness, told in form of stories, on different possibilities and courses of the illness for different people, and the human suffering, and comprehensive information on various aspects of the illness, and where to get help, etc. It provided answers to some of my specific questions such as the danger of violence from an ill person and how drugs may contribute to the illness, which I haven't found in other books.
