This is not a book of beautiful words, but of hard-won truths. As a diagnosed schizophrenic, Jim Burns is a man tortured by his outer self for much of his life, yet truly at home with the inner self. His illness gives him unique insight into psychology and the impetus to study the mind as, truly, his life depended on it. Perhaps his greatest gift is leaving clues for other seekers looking for inner truth. My answer, he says, is to know the Self.
