More About the Author

So, I have this thing called Bipolar Affective Disorder, (BAD!!!) and when you read Unsettling Life, you will find that living with it can be frequently funny, sometimes sad and often oddball, but never, ever, dull.

What a journey! What a life! What next?

Format: Paperback
I've just finished reading this book and I have to admit it is one of the most fascinating stories I have read in a long time. Very readable, and very, very interesting.

I half expected a disjointed story trying to amateurishly explain what bipolar disorder is, the medical side, the psychology side, the personal side, repeatedly, but David has simply taken a scalpel and cut a great slice through his whole life, flayed it open and put that cross section down on paper. That IS the book. No excuses given, the details are down for all to see.

Even without the bipolar disorder angle, this would still be an extraordinary book, about an extraordinary life.

I raced through this autobiography and loved every bit of it!

For anyone who has, or who knows/has known someone with manic depression/bipolar this is a must read.

However, read it even if you don't, it's hilariously funny, moving, poignant, sad. He writes plainly about his life and its trials and tribulations keeping you hooked until the last page.

There is a disclaimer at the outset for those who are offended by bad language, but it's NOT offensive (this from someone who doesn't swear). Because it's written in the first person, you know the language is just reflecting his real life speech and how he deals with the situations he finds himself in, how can that be offensive? He's not swearing at YOU, so don't let that put you off.

If you're like me you'll want to know how David's story continues, so I'm also now following him on twitter to keep up to date (@BayTheMoon)!

This is such a good read and hard to put down. I found myself looking forward to the next evening when I could once again be entertained by the laugh out loud antics of the writers experiences and the near to weeping as he struggled to come to terms with his mental disorder.

Good stuff!!!

It hit some personal notes for me, a very emotional roller coaster journey of a cyclothymia sufferer . A tale well told.
