Disordered Thought in Schizophrenia
by Loren Chapman and Jean Chapman

Schizophrenia is a catastrophic illness that markedly disrupts both the form and content of patients' thought. Published in 1973, Disordered Thought in Schizophrenia was a landmark text on the measurement and understanding of cognitive impairment in the disorder. I had the great fortune to have the book's authors, Professors Loren & Jean Chapman, as my graduate mentors at the University of Wisconsin. This book reminds me of the rigorous training I received from them, as well as the challenge and joy that comes from scientific investigation of such complex human behaviors. I am pleased to select this text to commemorate my promotion and honor my mentors.
