This book offers the reader a glimpse into a truely beautiful mind. So many times we judge people without looking at the world from their point of view. This is a journey we should all take in learning. God bless you Jacob, I pray He blesses your family. Thank you for writing this book.

When my husband was diagnosed with schizophrenia our world changed. We searched for books to help us learn about this illness. Most of the books we found were not current and didn't seem to capture the hope that is possible in this illness. Jacob wrote this journal to help people like us. His descriptions of what it is like to live with schizophrenia helps to capture this evasive illness.

I thank Jacob for the courage it took to write and publish this journal.

The absolute, best description of schizophrenia availible and also a can-not-put-it-down-page-turner. I do not own an e-reader so I've been glued to my computer screen for the last 2 hours but the time spent was completely worth every second! Extremely helpful first person account and also a life lesson that only true experience can capture. Thank you Jacob for sharing. I WILL buy a hard copy as soon as it is availible!
