Dr. Torrey Takes 'The Insanity Offense'
Date:6/23/2008

New Book Royalties to Benefit TAC

ARLINGTON, Va., June 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Insanity Offense (http://www.amazon.com/Insanity-Offense-Americas-Seriously-Endangers/dp/039 3066584/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1213968063&sr=8-1 ), E.

In addition to a tremendous opportunity to educate the public and policy makers, Dr. Torrey is donating the royalties for the book sales to TAC.
