    Excellent for people just diagnosed with a Bipolar Spectrum Disorder

    This is an excellent book for clients recently diagnosed with a Bipolar Spectum Disorder. It does not have alot of psychologist jargon, so is readily accessible for clients. DBT Skills described help clients identify their own symptoms and develop skills used to help keep depression and mania from getting severe.

    Mediocre

    This book generally followed the principles of Buddhism but did not really help me at all. I think Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has helped more.
