Breaking the Silence
MIRROR FOR THE MIND
"You simply cannot read Breaking the Silence without being transformed in a way. This refreshingly honest, highly detailed, and deeply introspective memoir reached the deepest parts of my soul and left me significantly enriched with wisdom. Its deep questions, observations, and contemplations about life's contradictions and hurdles remind me of the most influential philosophers in history...Dara Sanandaji's story proves that nobody is beyond redemption, no matter how far gone they are...What a truly inspiring and educative experience!"
"Powerful writing paired with an empowering story, "Breaking the Silence" is a testament to resilience...at times Dara Sanandaji's journey had me on the verge of tears...He was open, vulnerable, and unafraid to share his struggles with the world so that other people can take courage from his experiences...Reading this book felt like having a private conversation with a friend. Dara is an inspiration for thousands!"
"Dara Sanandaji doesn't pull any punches in revealing the travails of his psychological burden to bring to the forefront the manifestation of his self-awareness. Sanandaji's grasp on the nature of his condition is both profound and enlightening...If man versus himself is one of the most powerful conflicts in fact and fiction, then Sanandaji's bout with his inner turmoil is one for the books...Breaking the Silence is an inspiring read, a confession of suffering with appropriate information for anyone to understand mental disturbance and the need to consider more perspectives."
"Author Dara Sanandaji delivers some truly powerful autobiographical writing in this heartfelt account of intense troubles that psychological disorders can cause us...Sanandaji portrays a fascinating and often highly emotional inner dialogue that resonates deeply on these wider themes, and I felt that the honesty of the author came through in these moments very profoundly. By the time you finish Breaking the Silence, it feels as if something very private and important has been shared with you. A highly recommended read."
"It doesn't hold back in its intensity and coverage; it's what people need to read to understand the dynamics and what one person can go through mentally. It describes how the mind can crumble under pressure and circumstances, but it doesn't stop there--it shows how healing can take place...The general audience will find this book deep and informative, even those who don't deal with mental health issues on a daily basis. If you've ever felt on the edge of mentally breaking apart, or know someone who has, this book is for you and for them."
