LEGACY OF WISDOM is the great new book by Gabrielle V. Taylor. Gabrielle's book tells a journey into the development of wisdom, and the path of that legacy through generations, as seen through the lens of a profound relationship between a grandmother and granddaughter. Practical scientific research and multi-generational family stories come together to offer a complex look at what the word "wisdom" truly represents, how individuals develop it, and how we pass it on.

Today's guest on the We Choose Respect ParentCast is author Shannon Love. Shannon Love, a seemingly happy woman, through unforeseen circumstances, falls into a critical psychotic state, while living in Beijing, China. Enchanted by a voice in her head, she becomes suspicious of humanity--most of all Charles, her husband, believing he wishes her dead. Shannon's hallucination, along with relentless delusions, send her into a state of terror, landing her in a Chinese psychiatric hospital, as the only foreigner. Then, after sinking deeper into madness, she must be evacuated to the U.S. for intense treatment. Meanwhile, her husband, with his undying love, holds firm to his matrimonial vow "for better or for worse," and never gives up on his wife--even through the turmoil of a relapse. Shannon eventually returns to him as her sane self but concedes that she may have never broken free, if not for his eternal devotion. This is an incredible story, and can help us develop more empathy for folks with mental illness.
