Publisher's Summary

Many biographies of people with schizophrenia seem to dwell primarily on the feeling of hopelessness, and they keep expectations for the sufferer's future low. With this autobiography, Mr. Jiang attempts to turn the tables on this litany of sorrow. He shows himself as a result of the miracles that modern medicine can produce. He went from being a basket case to a respected, technologically-savvy medical librarian working at a world-renowned research institution.

    Story
    "Interesting, confusing"

    The story is about a man, his fall into Mental illness and recovery. Just a story like others, but there is a uniqueness that made me want to keep listening.. i finished the audio in one day. .. I would recommend if interested in the daily life, and functioning of a person w this disease.
    However, the reader kept repeating sentences and words throughout the entire book.. Don't know if intentional or not, but at times very distracting.
    Almost stopped listening at one point, but instead just skipped to next chapter.... The repetition, seemed to improve in last few chapters.

    Story
    "Audio Book Listeners Beware"
    Would you try another book from William Jiang and/or Daniel Pierce?

    No.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Unfortunately the editing of this book was deplorable. It was a struggle to get through Chapter 3 with all the restarts, throat clearing, belching, and content repeats of words and sentences.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't understand why the author felt it necessary to praise himself, over and over, for his accomplishments when they are self evident.
