Michael Jackson Releases New Memoir TO HELL AND BACK
by BWW News Desk - Nov 7, 2016

To Hell and Back is the author's candid redemption memoir that documents his roller coaster journey through the peaks and valleys of undiagnosed bipolar disorder. The story covers Jackson's successful advancement from a rough childhood in the Philadelphia Ghetto to a stint in the Marines, a successful business career, and a happy marriage. All this was cut short by his plunge into the vile and decrepit world of a homeless drug addict, as he sought to self-medicate his mental illness. The book takes place on multiple continents and in many cities, with the unifying theme being the environments where the drug culture and mental illness clash in today's metropolises, small towns, and rural bus stations. Jackson has known many of these places and has shared cardboard dwellings with their residents. To Hell and Back is available in both print and ebook formats. Book Details: To Hell and Back By Michael Jackson Publisher: Page Publishing Published: May 2016 ISBN: 978-1682895351 (print) ISBN: 978-1682895368 (digital) ASIN: B01CLRGHTC Pages: 348 Genre: Non-Fiction, Memoir About The Author: Michael Jackson was born in Jacksonville, Florida at the age of four he was raised in one of the worst Ghettos in the city of Philadelphia. His first break in life was through a Quaker woman who sponsored him in an educational program. This taught him that no matter where you are in life you always need at least one good person to help you. He escaped Philly to become a member of the United States Marine Corp where he traveled the United States and the world. During this time he came across many hardships and struggles. A business man and husband, Michael Jackson went from suit and tie to a untreated bipolar person that was homeless. Losing his family, friends, and loved ones after a fluctuating history with drugs, alcohol, and the law he now uses his knowledge and experience towards helping others through his non-profit organization, Think Then Choose Wisely. Now today he stands before you, 7 years without a drop. Now fully reconnected with his spiritual side he says, 'They used to call me an alcoholic and a drug addict, but now they call me Mr. NPO.'
