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."

Thomas T. Johnson, Jr., '49, a Louisville native and graduate of the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law, passed away on December 28, 2011 in Los Angeles.
Johnson is best known for his ruling, issued in 1981, that the Holocaust was "a fact and not reasonably subject to dispute," in a case brought by an Auschwitz survivor against a Holocaust-denying group.
Johnson was born on Feb. 26, 1923 in Louisville, Ky. and earned degrees in engineering and law (1949) from the University of Louisville before going to work for the U.S. Justice Department.
