Derzeit tritt ein Problem beim Filtern der Rezensionen auf. Bitte versuchen Sie es später noch einmal.
Die Struktur des Buches war allerdings teilweise etwas chaotisch und teilweise gar redundant. So gibt es individuelle Geschichte, die aber meistens zu 50-80% bereits im Fliesstext integriert sind. Und teilweise stückelt die Autorin Erkenntnisse von anderen zusammen, so dass es sich eher wie ein Flickwerk liest. Sie ist ihren Quellen gegenüber auch enorm unkritisch.

I saw myself in each story and I applaud the women for being brave enough to share in such a public way.
My preference was for the stories so I did gloss over the science of depression and other illnesses. That was a bit of a slower read for me. But I enjoyed it because it's great that science is taking notice of something crocheters have known for a long time, Crochet heals.
Stopping by to move my rating of 4 stars to 5 stars. Loved the book - have read it 3 times now and each time I love it more. A must read for anyone who crafts.
The book is a bit repetitive, but that's to be expected I suppose since she discusses the people she's writing about then says "read more about so-and-so later on under the title so-and-so's story." Plus the purpose of the book is to imply strongly that crochet is helpful for dealing with several medical and physical disorders, so it's to expected that there would be some repetition as the author talks about how crochet helps with each of those disorders.
Despite the nature of the writing though, I still think this is a powerful book. I've recommended it to several friends of mine, and they've found it to be very inspiring. I'm sure they've also passed on the recommendation to their friends.
I think this book offers great insight on the ability of any hobbie to contribute to the healing process, without dismissing or trashing the need for sustained support, medication, and therapy. For many of the issues discussed there is no cure, but there are positive coping strategies, one of which is crochet. I also commend Verccillo for the tone which remains positive despite the difficult and dark nature of some of the narratives.
I'm definitely going to keep this book in my stable. I highly recommend this book to caretakers, family members of affected individuals and medical professionals as well due the unflinching insight it provides and for the compassion with which these topics are addressed.
I wanted to find Kathryn and thank her for what she has done by exposing herself and telling us that we are not alone. Crochet is a big help, especially in dark winter months but Kathryn Vercillo is the best help I have had in a long time!
Read this book if you have been depressed even if you are better. Read it if you have a close friend or family member who has been depressed; it will help you understand and that would be a tremendous gift to them.
Unfortunately, since the book is on my kindle I can't lend it to others but eventually I want to get a hard copy to share with friends.
Thank you, Kathryn.
