Phillip A. Hope, a passionate writer with an affinity for music and film, has completed his new book “On Account of Madness”: a potent account that lets readers dive into the vantage point of a madman, and how his life spiraled down into chaos amidst the beat of rock and roll and entertainment.

Author Hope reveals underlying reasons and backstories that tell the other side of a person, and how these backgrounds influenced the course of his or her life: “Abuse was just part of my life. Looking back, I can’t say that that type of discipline helped or was detrimental. That’s just the way things were. All kids were disciplined that way back then, so I never took it personally. Lots of people I know think society would be better off if we went back to the good old days. Some people think kids are too spoiled nowadays and get away with too much. Who knows? I was beat as a kid, and I don’t know how much it helped me; I am still, at times, a spoiled brat who wants my own way. In a way, it actually might have made my life worse because I thought violence was a viable option. Why wouldn’t I think that? It’s what was shown to me—solve problems.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Phillip A. Hope’s heartrending tale shows a broken man who has experienced the overwhelming lows of life such as alcoholism, drugs, betrayal, and insanity, as well as its shining glories reflected on the success of concerts, videos, and parties here and there. This book is truly a gripping ride.

Readers who wish to experience this pounding work can purchase “On Account of Madness” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
