    Easy to read guide

    Easy to read guide chock full of action steps and easy to implement tools to manage bipolar disorder. The sections of the book build on one another to create a simple path to follow. This really is a "101" book, being most useful to individuals recently diagnosed or those who have not yet been diagnosed but suspect they have bipolar disorder. My favorite chapter was "Minimize Stress."
