"A practical, straightforward book that will be a great help to those who have bipolar illness, as well as their families. I could not recommend this book more highly." (Kay Redfield Jamison, Ph.D., author of An Unquiet Mind)
This book offered me invaluable resources in granting me a deeper understanding of bipolar disorder. I would recommend this book to anyone struggling with bipolar disorder
"Very helpful book for patients & their families."
Detailed and helpful resource for anyone attempting to live with bipolar disorder. Easy to understand.
"Helped a lot to understand the disorder"
Helped a lot to understand the disorder so I can help my son.
Thanks a lot.
"Answered loads of questions..."
The support for Bipolar in the UK is very different to the US in respect of information. This book gave examples of patient experience that I could relate to and tempered the very frightening diagnosis. Its a must for anyone needing guidance for themselves or loved ones to enable you to drive the illness rather than the other way round.
