2.0 out of 5 stars not as good as when someone you love has bi polar, 17 Oct. 2010
this has some good points of information but i feel it doesn't explain how devastating it is to have a diagnosis, which few people know anything about and as a whole use it as a way to judge you. i don't agree with the idea that artists are more likely to have it. i believe that because of the nature of their work which deals in emotion and life,they are more likely to talk about it. bi polar is genetic and the sufferer should be given respect for having to suffer an illness which affects the brain and its functioning. they are no different when they are well than any other individual and it is just random bad luck to suffer it in the first place. anyone who judges a person who suffers a brain illness should remember that it can develop at any age. so they should be careful who they mock as they could be next!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book, 17 Oct. 2010
this book is excellent in explaining what it is like to have bi- polar. it makes it easy to identify and doesn't discriminate against the sufferer. it tells how so many people were wrongly diagnosed with depression and given anti depressants which made the episodes worse. instead they should have been given mood stabilizing medication. it is written with empathy towards the sufferer which is often overlooked. it also points out how to best prevent further episodes and warns of the danger of alcohol and caffeine. a read that reassures the sufferer.
