A light-hearted romp through the world of bipolar young adults. Easy reading, without much substance. The author, via a road trip, is looking for young successful bipolar individuals like herself. Along the way she gets involved with a non-medicated bipolar man much older than herself. While she does find a few "successful" young individuals with bipolar disorder, for the most part she talks ill of support groups and the individuals in them. I found that discouraging. www.bipolarfirsthand.com One woman's firsthand account of living with bipolar disorder.

If you or a friend have bipolar disorder it is a must read. Even if you don't have the disorder it is a page turner. You will come away with a truly touching story.

Lizzie Simon's book is amazing! Her writing style and stories made it impossible to put down. The choppy style brilliantly illuminates the reality of bipolar disorder. I personally am not diagnosed, but have a family member who is. Lizzie stresses that it is a treatable illness and tells the stories of many other young people who are proof that you can live an amazing life with the disorder. This book is incredible and a MUST READ for everyone, bipolar or not. Amazing woman, amazing book. Read it.

This was the second book I read after being diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder Type I in December of 2002. I was 20 at the time, and finding this book was fate. This book speaks to all of us who are young and bipolar. It gave me hope, and it showed me that the stigma associated with this disorder does not need to exist. Lizzie Simon portrays all of us in a positive light. She does not hold back on the horrors of this disease, but shows, as she puts it, that 'treatment is working'. She helped me believe that I can be productive, successful, and fearless, while still being bipolar. If you are young, and have bipolar disorder, you must read this book. If you are not, but want to hear OUR voice, you must read this book as well.

I have always had an interest in researching bipolar disorder since the 8th grade when I learned of this disorder. I am currently doing a health project, and chose this topic once again as part of a book report. The title immediately caught my eye, so I purchased it online. After reading this book, I feel as though I have a complete, new outlook on this disorder as well as many others. Simon conveys her message and theories in such a clear and concise manner, that I was not able to even put the book down (except to finish other work). I am so impressed by how she took the reader almost with her on the road trip, through her ups and downs, which made me feel as though I was there as well. I highly recommend this book for anybody to read, in order to educate themselves, or to just get a better overall outlook on life. She talks of her trying to find her herd, and in actuality we all our trying to find our own herds in life. I really loved this book!
