The Three Christs of Ypsilanti

Why have I never heard of this book before? It's about an experiment done at the (now closed) Ypsilanti State Hospital located near Ann Arbor, MI in 1959. Three men who all claimed to be Jesus Christ were put in a room together during the day to interact while being observed. It was a study of delusional behavior when confronted by reality. Spoiler: Each considered the other two to be delusional. Go figure?
