it's refreshing to get a view of mental illness from the inside out, rather than the portrait we normally get in the media...which is usually a stereotyped look from the outside in.
Like many first-time authors, N. Daniel grinds his gears for a bit before picking a lane in the 2nd half of the book and flooring it. The result is a surprisingly funny, intense, suspenseful, and enlightening stroll through the corridors of our mental health system. "Corners" has the sardonic no-nonsense brutalism of

A very well thought out story about hope and resilience. Everyone should read this book to understand the stages of mental health. It explores topics such as race, religion, and mental health. An excellent must read!
Liliyana Shadowlyn
A word of warning - Corners Untouched by Madness is not to be read lightly. There were times that the madness underneath is brought so close to the surface that it's hard to read, but that's also what makes it powerful. You are drawn into a mind struggling to find peace in a world where mental illness is highly stigmatized. A worthwhile read, but be sure you are prepared for what you'll find betwixt the covers before you start. ...more

N. Daniel's book reads like a personal journal so you really feel yourself traveling along his side as he falls into a downward spiral of mental illness. The rawness of his writing make you really feel the fragility of the human mind and what mental illness can do to someone, so much so that it was actually hard to read at times. However, it is important for everyone to see what can happen to the human mind and how hope and resilience can help pull one up from the pits.

An especially powerful pa

If there is a book that deserves five stars, it is this one. N. Daniel brings us on a profound journey of mental health. It is raw, sometimes heartbreaking, but I found myself able to relate to many of his struggles.

This book dives deep into the mindset of a troubled soul. It also shows us how humanity can rise from the depths of despair and heal.

I recommend this book to all who want to see the truth about mental health in the world.
