Indie book blast: Through the Crimson Mirror

Title: Through the Crimson Mirror
Author: Daniel Alexander
Genre: Autobiography, non-fiction, parenting

About the book
Through the Crimson Mirror is a story, an autobiography and a unique look at parenting: a view from a child’s point of view. Effective communication should be a two-way interaction, but for a long time society adopted the attitude of “children are to be seen and not heard.” Unfortunately, we are seeing the ripples of that now: depression, alcoholism, obesity, drug use, gang culture, abortions are all on the rise. There are root causes for all of these, which as a society, we are not addressing.
Often the root causes of these problems are crated when people are young, and often parents aren’t aware of this. What Through the Crimson Mirror tries to do is tell the author’s story while sharing all the lesson he wished he had learned while growing up. In addition, the feelings behind the lessons and the reasons for certain destructive behaviors in children.
The author did a lot of research to form the conclusions that are in the book. In addition, the author interviewed many people including teachers, children, parents, reformed alcoholics and drug addicts, prisoners, counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, people who work with children that have learning challenges such as ADHD and dyslexia and more.
Through the Crimson Mirror touches on many subjects including depression and mental health, loneliness, education and communication to mention a few. It appeals to a wide audience because it’s a story, an autobiography and a parenting book.

  2. Thanks for the comment Samantha.
    If you come back, would you elaborate on that?
    I love hearing what people have to say.
    I was on radio the other night, and the DJ runs a rehab clinic / wellness center.
    By talking to him, I learned so much more information about new methods, techniques and theories in those fields.
    It was a great interview, as we both learned a lot.
    And hopefully so did the listeners ;)
