Reviews of this Book

I loved this book. Keyes took the story of a man’s unwillingly horrible life, and brought it to the eyes of the world. Although I might be a bit biased because I’m related to Daniel Keyes (3rd cousin), I do believe this is one of the greatest non-fiction works of all time.

it was one of the best books ive ever seen. easy terms r used in the book,which enable various range of different age groups to understand quite easily. many pple who wrote reviews on this book said that they had read the books about him within 3days, and so did i, and it might be a good indication for u to have an interest in reading them.

This book is easily one of the best I’ve ever read. I read it in about four days (in between homework) when I was in the tenth grade. I borrowed it from a friend who’s father is a Psychologist. Very interesting stuff, a must read.

The minds of Billy Milligan is an excellent, mind boggling and very readable book. The author, Mr Daneil Keyes, wrote the book in a simple term with details description of multiple personalty syndrome. When I started to read the book, I completely got hooked and finished the book in three days in spite of my normal work in the day. I would recommend this book to everyone to read and know about multiple personalty syndrome.

This book was remarkable!!You must read it. I knew billy for a short time. After his stay with the Ohio Dept. of Mental Health. He lived on Lancaster Ohio on Spring St. It was around 1988-89. The book portrayed him and his life to a tee! Again a must read.

Well if you all want to talk about the book go ahead. But i thought you’d want to know that not everything said is true. Trust me i would know, because i am Billy’s brother and i was in this book. It was a wrong thing to do to my brother and if you knew him as i did he was fine before all those doctors got to him. Would you like to know whats not in the book? I tried to get Bill out of that fuckin asilum and i tried to get him home but of coarse they didnt write about that. Keyes can burn in hell!

I read this book many years ago and have not been able to find it since. I’m sorry I can’t remember any other information apart from the title. An excellent book about a man with 26 personalities.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. I got through the whole thing in about 3 days. I took it everywhere with me. I could not stop reading about Billy’s life and what led him to be like this. It is a very intriguing story about this man’s life. This is a must read!

A psychology instructor once mentioned the book in passing during a class and I think It was a goldmine when I found a copy in a book sale. It was one of my most treasured belongings. The deliverance of the story was truly intense. Kudos! to you Daniel.
