Sensitive and amusing, a very good read,
This review is from: All in the Mind (Hardcover)
To be honest I've never liked Alastair Campbell. But I'm not interested in the author, I'm reviewing the book.
Also, for the record, I'm Bipolar 1.
At times the book made me laugh outload, and at other times you can't help feel a strong connection to the characters who are having a bad time.
I found the end of the book uplifting, and it has made me see the people in the mental health services in a more positive light.
This book should be compulsory reading for those who secretly think that depressives are just 'weak people', and come out with stupid phrases like 'pull yoursel together'. Intelligent people will enjoy it too.
