""Obsession with a celebrity - in my case with film director Clive Barker and his associates - is a common psychosis. He was my chimera, my phantom 'them' against whom I went into battle. The story becomes more accessible as the jargon unique to the conflict is introduced. I was stretched almost beyond return but the memoir is resolved with sheltered housing, effective medication, and tears of joy at the turn of 1999 into 2000. I was still alive, after many utter miracles of survival, and the book reaches closure during the first moments of an infant millennium. I have been well ever since."" - Richard M Clements "A brutally-honest diary account of one man's mental illness, this is a bit like the first part of Faulkner's 'The Sound and the Fury' coupled with 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nightime' and a very bizarre episode of the 'X-Files'. Richard describes his book as a cathartic memoir of his time suffering from schizophrenia, detailing his treatment from eight different hospitals as well as his disjointed grips with reality. It's not an easy book to read by its very nature, but does provide an incredible insight into the very private world of a schizophrenia sufferer. * * * * * " - By By Neil D'Arcy Jones, Colchester Evening Gazette DescriptionNot all schizophrenics are violent. This is a myth that the press would like us to believe, a myth undone by my Richard's example. This book is the culmination of a four-year project written; from the first-person 'unreliable narrator' perspective. It utilizes truth with facts that, however illusory, Richard could not voluntarily create himself. This book documents Richard's adventurous learning curves to psychiatric treatment on nine occasions in eight different hospitals for over twenty-nine months since 1990: as terrible as being locked in an I.C.U for over nine weeks, as exciting as being the saviour of alien planets, and as beautiful as being released from that same I.C.U to walk under trees that were the tallest things he had ever seen under a blue sky that stretched on forever. This is an inspirational and important book for schizophrenia sufferers. It is perhaps unique: a non-academic work that would appeal to academics, an exciting adventure for the sympathetic, and a case-study for mental health professionals to gain a long look into a private world. About the AuthorRichard M Clements is an inspirational author who has survived from acute schizophrenia and now wishes to use his experiences to help others with this disorder. He considers that discussing successful treatment in public is the responsibility for having recovered from illness to those that yet haven't. Richard has written several fictional novels and describes creative writing as the mainstay of his self-esteem, which is vital. Having a book published has been a life changing experience for Richard, of which he is very proud. For many service users it could be said that empowerment begins with pride, that pride is good. Richard would like to use his experience to counsel other sufferers of schizophrenia, particularly those also prescribed Closapine, a medication which has kept him out of hospital and happy for over six years.

Legendary Canadien and Hockey Hall of Fame inductee Larry Robinson takes readers rink-side in this highly anticipated and poignantly told memoir. Larry Robinson spent 20 seasons playing in the NHL -- seventeen with the Montreal Canadiens and retiring from the game after his final 3 seasons with the LA Kings. His great size gave his teams an incredible presence on the blue line and a tremendous defender in front of their net. But he was more than just big. He was agile, he could score and he played a style that provided both offensive and defensive strengths. For his effort, Robinson was twice recognized as the NHL's top defencemen and his contribution helped the Canadiens win the Stanley Cup six times during his tenure with the team. Never afraid to drop his gloves and play a physical game, Robinson is and will forever be regarded as one of the NHL's greatest defencemen. In The Great Defender, Robinson relives his road to the NHL and the unexpected NHL journey that has lasted over 4 decades. He has enjoyed the good fortune of playing with greats, including Ken Dryden and Guy Lafleur to coaching the greatest of all--Wayne Gretzky. His successes as a player and coach are well-documented and in his memoir, hockey fans will now enjoy the opportunity to experience the odyssey of this legendary player as seen through his eyes, lived through his emotions, and told through his voice. Robinson's story is one of triumph and will leave readers cheering for the man fondly nicknamed "Big Bird." In the process of writing this book, bestselling sports writer Kevin Shea interviewed many of Robinson's teammates, colleagues, players and family members and spent countless hours with Larry himself to capture a fascinating picture of one of hockey's greatest careers.

"Understanding Psalms for Children" originated from the desire to help younger generations comprehend the intense, unconditional, and unfailing love God has for each one of us. Acknowledging the wonders God has done in our lives from an early age will help children nurture their trust, hope, joy, faith, and love in our awesome God! The purpose of paraphrasing the Psalms and writing them in simple terms was not to detract children from reading the original versions but to encourage their assimilation through their comprehension. Activities are included to reinforce the absorption of the psalms. These psalms are recommended to be meditated upon daily, even if the activities have been completed. The intent on this book is to strengthen children's relationship with their most loving God through praise, thanksgiving, and trust.
