BLOG TOUR STOP FOR: Rules of the Tunnel

WELCOME TO THE BLOG TOUR FOR NED ZEMAN and his book:  RULES OF THE TUNNEL

TITLE:              Rules of the Tunnel, My Brief Period of Madness

AUTHOR:        Ned Zeman

GENRE:           Memoir

RATING:         4 Stars

I love reading this type of book - IF it is well written.  Fortunately, Rules of the Tunnel is an excellent read.

This memoir was written by the author after he basically exhausted just about every treatment available for major depression, including some scary episodes with ECT.  Zeman saw all of his life affected, in an obviously negative way and would no longer stand for it.  Thanks to a bit of good luck and some wonderful people who stood by him, he broke out of this cycle and slowly rebuilt his life.

While the author was not always likeable (he tended to be somewhat self-centered) he managed to describe his experiences in an honest manner that, strangely, made him more likeable to me.  It did not hurt that he also had a great sense of humor - as he describes his episodes.

Would this guy ever end up being my friend?  probably not, but I do admire his courage and honesty in telling us his story.
