"A Hidden Madness" Receives Rave Reviews

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."

Nathan Batey and Sarah Christianson gave strong performances in the National Animal Law Moot Court Competition last weekend in Los Angeles. Although the team did not advance to the semi-finals, the judges gave a substantial amount of positive feedback, saying that the team was “unflappable” and had given the best argument he had heard at the competition. Congratulations to Sarah and Nathan for representing our school so well on the West Coast.
