Ok, a few weeks ago I had my children watch a documentary on Dr. Freeman, the father of lobotomies. I decided to find out more about the survivors and found this book, My Lobotomy. It is a very interesting book with tragic consequences. Howard was only 12 when his step mother had Dr. Freeman perform and "ice pick" lobotomy. He survives.....and now is telling his story. It amazes me how easily a dr. was able to do such things on mental patients. If you are looking for a book that will give you a different perspective of history, this might be it for you.
