Description
A surprising tale of success by medical science confronted with a nearly insurmountable disorder. Well-rounded, powerful, and inspirational. Kirkus Reviews In the vein of Manic and Girl, Interrupted, and the popular stories of Oliver Sacks, Life in Rewind is the captivating true story of promising young athlete Ed Zine's sudden descent into severe mental illness, and the brilliant Harvard doctor, Michael A. Jenike, who broke through the boundaries of traditional medicine to save him. Written by Terry Weible Murphy with Zine and Jenike, Life in Rewind provides a shocking picture of severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and the surprising and unorthodox lengths to which a doctor goes to help his patient. The Washington Times calls this, An] extraordinary story. It is that and much more.


Praise For Life in Rewind

This isn’t a memoir so much as an inspiring doctor/patient success tale. TV correspondent Murphy chronicles how Michael Jenike, M.D., broke through Edward Zine’s seemingly impenetrable obsessive-compulsive disorder by breaking a rule—befriending his patient.
