Fourteen-year-old Kenneth Steele was listening to the radio at his home in Connecticut when he first heard the voices. Like Nobel-Prize winning mathematician John Nash - whose life story has been immortalized in A Beautiful Mind - Steele was to spend the next thirty-two years living with the devastating symptoms of schizophrenia.
Tortured by inner voices commanding him to kill himself, ravaged by the delusions of paranoia, barely surviving on the ragged edges of society, Steele tells the story of his hard-won recovery from schizophrenia and how activism and advocacy helped him regain his sanity and go on to give hope and support to so many others life him.
