“Ten Days in a Mad-House” is an 1887 work by American journalist Elizabeth Seaman. Originally published as a series of articles for the New York World, the book contains Seaman's ground-breaking exposé of an asylum which she infiltrated by feigning insanity. “Ten Days in a Mad-House” led to a grand jury investigation and increased funding for the Department of Public Charities and Corrections, as well as an entirely new style of investigative journalism. Elizabeth Cochrane Seaman (1864–1922), also known as Nellie Bly, was an American industrialist, journalist, charity worker, and inventor famous for her 72-day trip around the world in the footsteps of the fictional Phileas Fogg. Other notable works by this author include: “Six Months in Mexico” (1888), "The Mystery of Central Park" (1889), and "Nellie Bly's Book: Around the World in Seventy-two Days" (1890). Read & Co. Books is republishing this classic journalistic work in a new edition complete with an introductory biography by Frances E. Willard and Mary A. Livermore.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."
