“His remarkable memoir reads, unaccountably, like the most hair-raising of psychological thrillers. . . . A Mind Unraveled is inspirational in the true sense of the word. . . . It is written with great verve and wisdom by someone who has closely and thoughtfully detailed his own plight as well as the journey out of it. I found myself reading it obsessively. . . . It is a book to take heart from.”—Daphne Merkin, The New York Times Book Review
