"One of the most important books written on how to reform the mental health system."
--E. Fuller Torrey, MD, author of Surviving Schizophrenia "Essential reading for anyone concerned about America's most vulnerable."
--Sally Satel, MD, Yale University School of Medicine "The truth in this book haunts me with its blazing clarity. Jaffe's informed and passionate plea for fundamental change is rooted in a sense of deep humanity. He has paid attention to those who are neglected and suffering right under our noses and challenges us to do something about it."
--Glenn Close, actress and cofounder of Bring Change 2 Mind

"A timely and thoughtful analysis of a broken system that needs replacing."
--Pete Earley, bestselling author of Crazy: A Father's Search Through America's Mental Health Madness "Illuminates the countless and unacceptable failures of our mental health system--including the barbaric criminalization of mental illness."
--Thomas J. Dart, Cook County sheriff "A slashing, comprehensive, highly readable call to awareness and action."
--Ron Powers, Pulitzer prizewinner and author of No One Cares about Crazy People "This book will break your heart, make you furious, and ultimately give you hope when you read Jaffe's smart ideas for reform."
--Susan Adams, senior editor, Forbes "[We're] forcing people with no recognition of their illness onto the streets or into the jails in the name of civil liberties. Insane Consequences details what we should do."
--Norman Ornstein, resident scholar, American Enterpise Institute "DJ Jaffe calls us back to common sense and basic decency in this deeply felt, important book."
--Rich Lowry, editor, National Review "A smart and compassionate call to action."
--Allen Frances, former chair of the Department of Psychiatry at Duke and of the DSM-IV Task Force, and author of Saving Normal "I am proud that DJ Jaffe, a constituent and member of the Harlem chapter of National Alliance on Mental Illness, has been tirelessly advocating to help the seriously mentally ill. Through increased awareness and improved public policy as outlined in this book, we can combat challenges we face to ameliorate mental health."
--Charlie Rangel, former representative (D-NY)
