Sheila Cassidy is perhaps best known as the young doctor imprisoned and tortured for treating a wounded revolutionary in Pinochet's Chile. On her release and return to England, she became an outspoken advocate for human rights and the author of the international bestseller Audacity to Believe. In Made for Laughter, she writes with stark honesty of her struggle to overcome depression and insomnia, and her courageous but unsuccessful attempt to establish a new kind of religious order for women. She returned to medicine, worked with the terminally ill and developed new approaches to the care of young cancer patients, before training as a psychotherapist. Made for Laughter is a story of grace under pressure, and an inspirational guide for everyone who has ever grappled with the puzzle of finding our true purpose in life. Impetuous and irrepressible, Sheila Cassidy has discovered that, in the words of Desmond Tutu, 'We are made for compassion, for caring, and for sharing - but also for laughter.'
