A formula to help anyone achieve optimal brain functioning, this is a no non-sense guide reminding us that genius often looks crazy. It often comes with embarrassment, being misunderstood, and ridicule. Much of what we deem as "normal" in today's society is in direct opposition to genius. All it takes is one spark to ignite genius. And this book is that spark.
Drawing on neuroscience, psychology, patience, tenacity, humor, and the power of personal story, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Jermaine Tolbert delves into how he fought through the arduous undertaking of uprooting what was diagnosed as both Paranoid Schizophrenia and Depression—climbing back to mental adroitness.
Forced to walk away from a music recording opportunity with a two-time Oscar nominated and multiple Grammy Award winner to re-develop mentally from the traumatic experience of being abruptly admitted into a local psychiatric medical facility in Southfield, MI, using "knowledge" as the catalyst and means, he has surmounted what others would dare to peer into—a microscopic look into the self.
This book is designed for the community of individuals living in a mental war, and the many who may face a mental battle in the future. It teaches those suffering with any form of mental illness (and those who love and care for them) how to break free from the stigma. It encourages optimal use of the mind by all parties. It's for parents with children suffering, or parents who have children that are gifted. For millennials, musicians, artists, corporate business professionals, entrepreneurs, and those aspiring to be. Remind Me To Think: The Genius Behind Crazy is for anyone with dreams bigger than their current realities.
“Irresistible page-turner that chronicles the battle of dealing with a mental illness, and redefining the associated stigma."

"Jermaine Tolbert takes us on his personal journey. A painful, unfortunate journey experienced by way too many kids and youth-the consequences of which could be permanently life altering. He, however, also shares with us the journey to his personal life rediscovery, and how he is turning his past pains, bad choices, and negative childhood circumstances in a positive direction. An inspiring book indeed!"

"Mental Health is easily and readily overlooked in the black community, especially amongst young black men. I am grateful Jermaine has placed his personal journey on a platform in joining the movement to raise awareness of mental health in our community. No better advice than from the mind, and voice of one who is mastering the challenge."

“Remind Me To Think is a heartfelt and inspirational story of adversity, healing, and, ultimately, triumph. Jermaine captures readers from the very first chapter with his bold honesty and purposeful transparency, while keeping readers thirsty for what’s to come in the subsequent chapters. You’ll learn firsthand about the struggles of a blossoming musician turned mental health advocate, who had to fight for his own sanity while dealing with a defective mental health system. One of the most inspiring books I’ve read to-date.”
