This effort raised $600, which will provide scholarships to four Central students to the Summer Law Institute sponsored by the Louisville Bar Association, the Brandeis School of Law, and Bellarmine University for about 28 high school students each summer.
A Hidden Madness, the recently published memoirs of professor James T. Jones, has not only sold more than 100 copies in one month and received a five-star rating at Amazon.com, it has been positively reviewed by several blogers, including A Book A Day Review and Book Critics.
From Gabrielle Wheelers review on A Book A Day:
"His decision to publish this book, given the character of the disease, shows an even greater bravery. Much as he wanted to to help others suffering from bipolar disorder, he was afraid."
Be sure to stay up-to-date on the status of Jones' book by regularly checking in at his blog.
