    Gave me new hope

    I found this book quite enlightening and informative. It's filled with up-to-date information that is presented in a well-organized manner. As someone who suffers from bipolar disorder, I found it uplifting to learn more about what's wrong with me and see that progress is being made toward better treatments. This book should be read by bipolar patients, as well as their families and friends.

    I recommend this book to primary care physicians and anyone who wants to have a clearer understanding of this illness. New Hope for People with Bipolar Disorder, written by international authorities and an individual living the experience of bipolar disease, will educate and make it less likely that a physician will miss diagnosing this most difficult disorder. I wish I could have had access to this book while I was engaged in active clinical practice.

    New Hope for People with Bipolar Disorder: Your Friendly, Authoritative Guide to the Latest in Traditional and Complementar y Solutions, Including: Proper Diagnosis of Depression and Manic-Depressive ...

    Which of us will admit that mood swings lead us to question our state of mind, as in, 'Am I losing it?' New Hope for People With Bipolar Disorder, by Jan Fawcett, MD, Bernard Golden, PhD, and Nancy Rosenfeld, Exemplar, legitimizes our question regardless of the answer. New Hope... is not a 'feel good' pseudo panacea directed to sufferers, families and friends of sufferers of what is popularly known as Depression and Manic-Depressive illness. The authors assure their readers that he and she are not their illness. Public awareness, now, embraces most physical illness and disease as having causes that are not the 'fault' of the patient. Emotional and mental dysfunctions have not yet been accorded similar understanding and respect. The absolute interconnections among physical, emotional and mental discomforts are valid and necessary lessons we must learn. New Hope... is a mighty blow against overwhelming, prevailing ignorance. A sufferer with bipolar disorder is often told to 'get over it,' or condemned as a moral coward. The authors demonstrate through science, compassion and experience that the disease's combination of bio-chemical, genetic and environmental factors are real, not imaginary. This is a book I've waited for, although it arrives too late for loved ones who could have been saved by having it available. The book can be read as a factual presentation into the most prevalent, misunderstood and ignored physical-emotional-mental illness in current society. It can be used as an up to the moment reference and source for personal, medical and psycho-social answers and assistance. Its most important value may be to assault and dispel fear and ignorance about emotional-mental illness. The seamless collaboration by a medical practitioner, a psychologist and a patient on equal terms is an example of the best kind of interactions for all of us.

    New Hope for People with Bipolar Disorder: Your Friendly, Authoritative Guide to the Latest in Traditional and Complementar y Solutions, Including: Proper Diagnosis of Depression and Manic-Depressive ...

    A collaboration of three writers, New Hope for People With Bipolar Disorder speaks to a broad audience. Coming from three perspectives, the book sometimes speaks *to* the bipolar sufferer and sometimes speaks *for* the afflicted individual or family. While providing advice to the manic-depressive, to people in intimate relationships with manic-depressives (parents and spouses) and to friends, acquaintances and colleagues of manic-depressives, the book also makes appeals to the medical profession and other service providers, to the insurance industry and to the general public. Speaking to the individual suffering from bipolar disorder or related afflictions, three chapters on the biological and medical aspects serve as an up-to-the-moment primer for the lay person. A solid backgrounder, this section prepares the patient for a more informed and engaged relationship with his or her doctors and other medical providers. Likewise for the sufferer himself or herself, chapters on psychotherapy, self-help and support groups compile the best advice and guidance the field has offered over the past decade. While much of the information useful to the patient himself or herself is also useful to family and friends, chapters on living with afflicted people and on suicide prevention speak more directly to individuals in these positions. Finally, chapters on stigma and on bipolar disorder in children and adolescents address the larger community. Doctors and medical providers are asked to keep current with improving treatment options and regimes. Insurance providers are implored to grasp the essentially medical nature of these illnesses and handle coverage as other medical coverage is handled. And, finally, the authors entreat the general public to engage a sense of compassion and understanding to reduce the stigma associated with these and other emotional illnesses. Written in a remarkably fluid, readable style, New Hope for People With Bipolar Disorder deserves a place on many a bookshelf.

It is a clearly written and informative book that is valuable for the helping professionals, clients who suffer from the disorder and for those close to clients with bipolar disorder both at home and work. Thank you for this fine addition to the literature on this disorder.

    This deserves the highest marks for a work on manic-depressive illness. It is profoundly engrossing, comprehensive, and its uniqueness is its message of 'hope' delivered from three distinct perspectives.

    New Hope for People with Bipolar Disorder: Your Friendly, Authoritative Guide to the Latest in Traditional and Complementar y Solutions, Including: Proper Diagnosis of Depression and Manic-Depressive ...

    New Hope for People With Bipolar Disorder is a book that delivers its promise. The authors have contributed their understanding and extraordinary knowledge of manic-depressive illness to help those who suffer from this malady - to give them and their loved ones hope. There is also a cautionary note which details how the all too common failure to diagnose this disorder can disable and destroy lives. This is not done through the simple recitation of statistics, but rather by detailing personal accounts and reflecting on the lives, experiences, and medical strategies of those who have met the challenge and coped. If I had read this book ten years ago, my life would be dramatically different today. So many persons would have been spared the pain my untreated illness brought them. And if everyone would read this book, so much of the stigma which inhibits sufferers from seeking treatment would dissipate and shame would be transformed to compassion.
