Ten Days in a Mad-House is a history and mental health book written by Nellie Bly and originally published in 1887.

The book came about as a journalistic investigation in which Nellie Bly infiltrated a psychiatric hospital to investigate the deplorable conditions suffered by the patients while the government looked the other way.

It is a tough read, as well as a necessary one, as it is written in the first person, with each event narrated in it being real and experienced by Nellie Bly herself.

"Since my experiences in Blackwell’s Island Insane Asylum were published in the World I have received hundreds of letters in regard to it. The edition containing my story long since ran out, and I have been prevailed upon to allow it to be published in book-form, to sat- isfy the hundreds who are yet asking for copies.
