Format: Paperback
This book entered my life during my 2nd year of college, and it opened my eyes in so many profound ways. Dr. Peter Cranford details keen aspects of life in the World's Largest Insane Asylum (in central Georgia), and offers you a tantalizing glimpse into a disturbing world not often discussed in mainstream forums. You'll hear amongst his fascinating diary, tales of mad experiments and desperate crimes, top secret asylum procedures, twisted statistics, and MANY shocking tidbits of hysteria. If you're interested in asylum histories and data, or human psychosis then this is the book for you. You'll certainly have a hard time putting it down! :D

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ths book arrived more quickly than I expected, and I was pleased about that! The contents were interesting, but did not go into detail about the abuse I witnessed in the early 60's. It was mentioned, but only briefly, and did not cover everything. For nearly a hundred dollars, I was somewhat disappointed.

Format: Paperback
Central State Hospital in Milledgeville, GA housed more than 12,000 patients in the 1960's. It was the world's largest mental hospital, and today remains the largest in the USA. This book provides a history of this institution, which both provided care and developed care for the mentally ill among our families and friends.

When I visited in 2010, i was saddened by the state of so many of the historical buildings, and the lack of funding to maintain the buildings and the history of this incredible site.

But For The Grace of God is told from the viewpoint of someone who was there--caring for the patients and staff; working to improve care for the mentally ill. It is both intriguing and abhorrent.

If you are one of the many of us who needed the services of CSH over the years, or an institution like it, this is a must read book
