A Beginner's Guide to Being Bipolar:

LEADS the newly diagnosed through the often difficult process of acceptance. From Chapter 1: "Welcome to the Family," to Chapter 6: "Make a Plan," this book teaches readers what to expect after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder (hint: expect the unexpected); how to remedy grief (hint: with science); and why it's important to commit to self-reflection (hint: maps tend to facilitate journeys).

INSPIRES old-timers with a fresh philosophy on life including new ideas about meditation, authenticity, self-care, neurochemistry, and more.

EQUIPS allies with tools to better understand bipolar disorder. Chapter 7: "This One's for the Allies" includes links to relevant sources as well as translative explanations of the bipolar experience for people with 'normal' brain chemistry.

Authored by a self-proclaimed linguaphile who has bipolar disorder and a penchant for metaphors, A Beginner's Guide to Being Bipolar unpacks a complicated subject with candid precision. Dozens of linked references provide a full introductory course of study for anyone interested in learning more about bipolar. Readers will enjoy a friendly, engaging, and well-researched tour through the labyrinth of bipolar life—and maybe even emerge with an empowered outlook.

About the Author

Brooke Baron has a BA in English, a minor in philosophy, and a lifelong obsession with language. Although born and raised in Alabama, she has been a proud California resident for 10+ years. During a professional stint in Silicon Valley—in both the corporate and private sectors—she handled internal and external communications, office design and construction, photography and graphic design, executive assistance, and functioning on very little sleep. Brooke now specializes in ‘New Human Orientation’ from her home in the suburbs. She has a young, loving, growing family of five and is fueled by that love and coffee.

In addition to caring for the rest of Team Baron, she enjoys writing, reading, researching miscellaneous topics, and funneling manic energy into creative projects. With so many balls in the air—including bipolar II disorder—balancing her life is like balancing two kangaroos on a see-saw.
