Talmadges brave and extraordinarily honest account of life with schizophrenia was written to reveal the inner workings of that most misundertsood of mental disorders. The author hopes the trip into insanity will enlighten people as they experience life inside a psychotic mind. This book was exceptionally difficult to write as the writing in itself provoked Talmadges condition, but the author has managed to write with a fluid and creative style.

    A beautiful book which will certainly help patients who are suffering from a psychosis. It’s the most honest book I’ve never read, and the most attracting account of life with schizophrenia.

    an interesting, well written, honest and clever book!!!
    i advise it!!!!

  3. Brian May (verified owner)

    Talmadge wrote a very strong book, talking about the basis of schizophrenia, which is quiet rare actually. So I would rather advise this book to adult people who are interested in the subject or who have already experienced this illness.

    This is the novel of a mind that has lost control with reality. Never could you go as deeply into the schizophrenic mind as Talmadge takes you throughout his book. It is a very tough account as well as a very sensitive one. Not to miss!
