    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway and thought it was interesting. It does a good job portraying how mentally ill people can blend in with society and how difficult it is to obtain mental health care and treatment even if you do have the resources and money. He is one of the lucky ones despite all of the challenges he faced. Some are not so lucky and spend the rest of their life in and out of jail and homeless shelters or die from an accidental drug overdose.

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. I only able to finish about a third of this memoir. It raised a lot of questions and made me think. I was interested in the story of it, but found that I had trouble getting into the writing style, and that’s the main reason I’m not finishing this memoir.

    This is a fascinating story of a person whose drug use and mental illness destroyed his life and then how he overcame that and rebuilt his family and his career. "A Memoir of Madness" is really a good description. It really doesn't have much to do with Jesus, though :) This is a fascinating story of a person whose drug use and mental illness destroyed his life and then how he overcame that and rebuilt his family and his career.
