Editorial Reviews

Review

"I finally understand what a person with a mental illness feels like,lives like, and how he fights for his sanity and his life every single day . . .This book has compassion, passion, understanding, and a force of will that will allow any person to become better and make peace with themselves. Great job."

"[Clyde's] story is fascinating because he is able to intellectualize what he was thinking and feeling at the time, even if he is discussing his paranoid delusional thoughts . . . As someone with a Master's of Science degree in a counseling field, I have found my greatest lessons have been from real people and not material in textbooks. As I read Clyde's story, I felt like I learned many lessons through what he has to share. My work will definitely be more beneficial by what I learned from him."

"An intensely personal and impressively well written memoir, "Fighting for Freedom in America: Memoir of a 'Schizophrenia' and Mainstream Cultural Delusions" is a compelling read from beginning to end."

"Much has been written on the subject of schizophrenia with as many paths to recovery as there are individuals affected by it, but Dee's work is most notable for his candid reflections on cultural delusions.  Clearly articulating the loss of faculties that make us what we are, they prove intrinsic to the telling of his story. More importantly they provide an often harrowing perspective on the anguish of mental illness from the inside and in doing so allow Dee to address commonly held beliefs and prejudices."

"Clyde Dee takes us on a heroes journey from condemnation to redemption, from diagnosis to self-definition. Seen through a filter of race, culture and often patriotism, Clyde Dee reminds us how fragile our human existence can be. . ."

"This is the tale of what happens when a compassionate, honest, humble man is confronted by corruption, cruelty and malice. . . Clyde's journey is one of self-discovery which ultimately leads him not away from but back to the man he always was one of society's unrecognised treasures."
