XML and new book on Schizophrenia to read

I have been learning XML through self study for about a year now.

I am also reading Larry Davidson's Living Outside Mental Illness (New York: New York University Press, 2003). The book Living Outside Mental Illness by Larry Davidson (New York: New York University Press, 2003) is subtitled Qualitative studies of recovery in schizophrenia and uses Phenomenology. This is sort of post decade of the brain research. Decade of the brain he points out tried to get no-fault and fair insurance coverage, offer hope, and destigimatize. What can we learn from the person who has schizophrenia? His estimates of costs 66$ billion annually in emergency room and criminal justice contacts 273$ billion annually in lost productivity for the USA. Phenomenology was founded by philosopher and mathematician Edmund Husserl and means we only know reality by "experiences". I will post more as I read this book.
