From the Back Cover



PRAISE FOR
How to BREATHE WHILE SUFFOCATING

"Vulnerable and raw, Brackett's autobiographical narrative takes you on a metamorphic journey from trauma to triumph, as his story of abandonment and addiction reveals a path from self-doubt to self-discovery. With resilience, he shows how tragedy can become an opportunity for growth."
--MY MENTAL HEALTH INC.

"Let's be clear. Bruce is a survivor in the highest order! There's a Buddhist saying that you can turn 'poison into medicine'. Mr. Brackett has done just that with their life. I felt like I was right there in parts of his life through the detailed writing as he painted a picture of incomprehensible poverty and mental illness and through their triumph against seemingly insurmountable odds. It's a story hard to be believed. And yet, alive and well, Bruce stands."
--JAMES T. LANE, Broadway Star

"Bruce Brackett delivers an authentic story filled with moments of overcoming adversity and moments of triumph. This is an inspirational read that motivates oneself to help others, to look for the possibilities, to dream big and to become your own best advocate."
--CHRISTIAN PARKER, Founder, Gay & Sober

"Bruce is a star that sparkles as brilliant as Alpha Centauri. Despite the odds and all the danger that he lived through--he is a survivor. BWB took control of their life that was in shambles and asked for help and got the help that he needed. Thank you BWB for being a light in our lives. His will to live and thrive is a miracle. Now remember to breathe and keep moving forward."
--MICHAEL ALAGO, Author, Photographer, Music Executive
