A real eye opener
This review is coming from someone who rarely, is able to sit down and read a book for more than a few minutes. I found this book to be incredibly hard to put down and I actually finished it in a matter of two days. This book, Mind on the Run, tells a story of a shocking, frustrating and incredibly sad journey that Scott Baker, his friends and family had to take while fighting a disorder that is usually over looked by society. Bipolar disorder is a real mental illness and the system that is set up in the country to protect the people with mental illness is actually doing more harm than good. It is my sincere hope that people, who are in a position to make changes happen, pick up this book and just take a few moments out of their busy life to see just how today¿s laws and regulations need to be changed.

This book is very true to what bipolar people suffer! I only wish the families of adult children could help more. It is true the mental health system is saturated, but these people are human beings that are sick and not just a number . What this family has went through with thier family member, i can relate as my son is suffering from this same thing and it is so heartbreaking . This disease needs alot more recognition from all that suffer from bipolar for the victlim and the family. I highly recomend the book to all that are experiencing this terrible disorder with a loved one. This book is wonderfully writen and is so true about how the system works for the person suffering. The system needs to take this serious because it is serious for sll the family. Thank u for sharing your story and i hope it will help others as it has helped meWas this review helpful?
