    Dear Reader,You’ve probably heard that my wife has left me. Rachel’s pregnant, and she says she can’t handle the stress in our household anymore. My 13-year-old daughter, Jolene, is jealous of her. Maybe it’s my fault. As a widower I spoiled her - Jolene was reading over my shoulder just now and says that’s not true. She claims Rachel ruined everything. But that’s not true. The real question is: How can I get my wife back? I don’t even know where she is. She’s not with Teri Polgar or any of her other friends from the salon.

    What would have made 1105 Yakima Street better?

    I think that if 1105 Yakima Street had less main characters it would be easier to follow what is going on in the book.

    Pete Earley had no idea. He'd been a journalist for over 30 years, and the author of several award-winning, even best-selling, nonfiction books about crime and punishment and society. Yet he'd always been on the outside looking in. He had no idea what it was like to be on the inside looking out until his son, Mike, was declared mentally ill, and Earley was thrown headlong into the maze of contradictions, disparities, and catch-22s that is America's mental health system.

    Where does Crazy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Crazy ranks high in all the audiobooks that I have listened to on the subject of mental illness, because I suffer from Schizoaffective Disorder, Bipolar Type and this book gave me insight on how others see me in my different phases of this illness and why I should keep taking my medication.

    John Nash was a mathematician teetering on the brink of international acclaim, but he fell instead into madness. Saved by the love of a beautiful woman and the loyalty of the mathematics community, he went on to win a Nobel Prize and worldwide fame. This is his true story - and a new film starring Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly.

    When readers first meet Ben, he is a sweet, intelligent, seemingly well-adjusted youngster. Fast forward to his teenage years, though, and Ben's life has spun out of control. Ben is swept along by an illness over which he has no control—one that results in runaway episodes, periods of homelessness, seven psychotic breaks, seven hospitalizations, and finally a diagnosis and treatment plan that begins to work.

    If you could sum up Ben Behind His Voices in three words, what would they be?

    Honest, True, Hopeful.


    What other book might you compare Ben Behind His Voices to and why?

    A Beautiful Mind: by Sylvia Nasar, is another book about someone with schizophrenia. I like Ben Behind His Voices better, because it is a book that tells it like it is, when a love one of an average family has schizophrenia.


    What does Randye Kaye bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is a good reader. She read it as if she was telling her own story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Life with Ben.


    Any additional comments?

    I like this book because there is hope even with a very devastating illness like schizophrenia. If you or a love one has schizophrenia, this is a good book for you.

    Discover magazine recently called Richard Dawkins "Darwin's Rottweiler" for his fierce and effective defense of evolution. Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world (along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky). Now Dawkins turns his considerable intellect on religion, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.
