I’m very pleased to announce that after years of work, due to the “miracles” of Amazon Kindle and Print on Demand my book Journeys Beyond the Frontier: A Rebellious Guide to Psychosis and Other Extraordinary Experiences has been published!!  

Check out this link:


Journeys Beyond the Frontier : A Rebellious Guide to Psychosis and Other Extraordinary Experiences - Kindle edition by Ragins, Mark. Health, Fitness & Dieting Kindle eBooks @ 


There’s a description of the book there and you can sample it and buy it.

I’m very proud of this book.  It has lots of great stories about people I’ve worked with, guidance for how to connect to people experiencing psychosis, understand them, and help them recover, as well as plenty of practical tips.

But before it sinks to the bottom of the Amazon sea, I need your help with three things:  

  • I need you to buy a book so it rises in their search engine and they promote it to other people.  If you read kindle books, the kindle version is cheaper ($9.99 vs 17.99 – and I actually get more) and it counts for sales just as much.

  • I need you to write a review if you can, since no one will buy a book without any reviews.  (You don’t have to read the whole book to write a review😊)

  • I especially need you to pass the word on to everyone you know, creating a ripple effect, so more people will buy it.  Put it on your social media, list serves, forward this e-mail to your friends and colleagues.

I honestly think you’ll like the book if you read it.  The stories might remind you why you love this field, you can share my explanations with the people you work with, and reading it will give people new to psychosis the inspiration they need to emotionally connect with people and escape hopelessness.  There are also plenty of my innovative ideas.  Families and people who want more than the DSM V will find it here too.
