First time a book is published that resonates with the psychiatric hospital
FEEDBACK: I finished reading the book last night at 03:12 AM. I could not let go of it. I
could not close my laptop. I went out to meet some friends but hurried back.
This time it's a winner: taut, tense prose; a plot as captivating as any
thriller's; a real-life story that reads like a nightmare and that ends in
personal redemption. Couched in a lean and muscular text, all the important
themes are here: self-discovery, one against the many, iconoclastic rebel faces
down the system, justice for all, mental illness as a mechanism for social
coercion. What a ride! What a treat! Brilliant. Sam Vaknin Ph.D. < Less

This book is a compilation of my essays over the years and was created from therapeutic models that resonate with actual experience. Also, for individuals that want to learn about developmental psychology to understand human behavior.
Much of my writings were extracted from the work of Glenn O. Gabbard, Margaret Mahler and Sam Vaknin.
