Excellent read. The stories of the inmates were interesting enough, but the patients’ stories were fascinating. While I don’t condone what White did, I can understand his motivations. At the risk of sounding a bit sanctimonious, I was deeply relieved to see his personal growth during this book. If he’d stayed the same power-hungry adulation craving individual he seemed to be at the beginning (sorry, Mr. White), I wouldn’t have enjoyed this book nearly as much as I did.
