    This renowned journalist's classic Pulitzer Prize winning investigation of schizophrenia - now reissued with a new postscript - follows a flamboyant and fiercely intelligent young woman as she struggles in the throes of mental illness. "Sylvia Frumkin" was born in 1948 and began showing signs of schizophrenia in her teens. She spent the next seventeen years in and out of mental institutions. In 1978, reporter Susan Sheehan took an interest in her and, for more than two years, became immersed in her life.

    At a time when being busy is worn as a badge of honour, and we are accustomed to filling every waking moment with (often useless or unpleasant) activity, Do Less Be More explores why switching off, or at the very least, slowing down, is vital to ensure we achieve what we want. Busyness is a barrier to self-reflection, a hindrance to novel solutions and a smokescreen to clarity. While cramming in one more task may feel useful, productive or even satisfying, it's not always the best use of a spare moment.
