    I admit I am not a book reader, it is very hard for me to sit and read for long periods of time, either my attention span or my dogs are interrupting me.

    As a part of my indoctrination to be on the Board of Directors for the foundation I have become a part of, it is required reading.

    So I was wondering if anyone here has read it? I plan on buying it this week. You can read the first chapter on line at Pete Early's website. He is a award winning writer for the Washington Post.

    It is about his journey with his Bi-Polar son who could not get treatment, then ended up in jail because he was in a manic state and committed a crime.

    Early spent a year inside the Miami Dade County Jail talking to immates and researching the healthcare system to see why the mental health care system is failing in todays world. Carla
