I found this to be a pretty good book about bipolar disorder- practical, well written, and easy to use. The book is up against some heavyweights since it is a practical guide to living with the illness- Torrey's 'Surviving Manic Depression' and Miklowitz's 'Bipolar Disorder Survival Guide' are formidable, excellent books on this subject. I like to get my information from a variety of sources however, so I think this book is a worthy addition to any small library on bipolar disorder, even though it doesn't provide the level of detail or expertise that the other two books bring to the table. Nonetheless, I learned quite a bit from this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
