Description

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.

Très intéressant mais de gros problèmes d'édition

Très intéressant mais de gros problèmes d'édition. En effet un long chapitre vers le début n'est long que parce qu'à maintes reprises, les phrases sont répétées pour les lire mieux, mais les phrases moins bien dites n'ont pas été retirées. Ce chapitre en devient quasi incompréhensible et exaspérant. Idem à quelques autres endroits dans le livre mais en faible quantité. L'éditeur doit absolument le reprendre car le travail audio n'est pas terminé.
Sur le fond, ce livre est en revanche clair et complet, très utile.

The editor must finish the job. The book in itself is very useful. In the current state, one needs to be patient...

Unedited

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This is an unedited copy. I'm guessing it was uploaded by mistake, and am hoping there is an edited copy somewhere. It's hard to listen to when lines are repeated three and four times to get them right, but then never edited.

Poor Narration

I'm sorry, I have listened to so many audio books and this ones narrator was so difficult to stay tuned into the story. He made several mistakes and kept repeating lines over and over, in a the beginning it wasn't a problem but I had to stop listening eventually because I couldn't stay focused. I was disappointed so far the story was interesting ....

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.

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.
