Review

"If you ve ever asked the question 'Do I need help?' or 'Does my loved one need help? then read this book. Merging her gut-wrenching personal story with all-pro journalistic acumen, Sheila Hamilton gives us the who-what-where-when-why of mental illness and what you can do to get the help you need. Most of all, this book gives us permission "not" to go through hardship alone, no matter what crises we face."
Laura Munson, "New York Times" best-selling author of "This Is Not The Story You Think It Is," and founder of Haven Writing Retreats
"Sheila Hamilton's "All The Things We Never Knew" is one of the most candid, heart-wrenching, and deeply moving accounts of the wake of destruction caused by the suicide of a loved one. Her book reminds us of those we've lost to suicide. The book casts the dark shadow that is depression, then rises from such darkness, reminding us to 'Look to the living, love them, and hold on.' Finally, it gives survivors tremendous resolve to continue in their quest for prevention.
Kevin Hines, mental health speaker, activist, and author of "Cracked, Not Broken: Surviving and Thriving After a Suicide Attempt"
Journalist Sheila Hamilton has written a bold and honest book that takes the stigma out of mental illness and explores the terrible and beautiful angles when a loved one suffers from bipolar disorder. Hamilton s reporter s eye and lover s heart give us a valuable perspective on how the grip of this insidious disease can destroy families and lives . . . Hamilton s story is not only a cautionary tale but another example of the resiliency within all of us, and our ability to make the choice to heal.
Lee Woodruff, bestselling author of "In an Instant" and "Perfectly Imperfect," and contributing reporter for "CBS This Morning"
""All the Things We Never Knew" is so beautiful, so raw, and so powerful. It is, in a word, spectacular, and Sheila Hamilton is so generous and brave to share this story with the rest of the world. Anyone who has struggled with mental illnesstheir own, their family members', their friends' (which is to say, all of us)will come away from this deeply humane book feeling less alone.
Kelly Williams Brown, bestselling author of "Adulting"
""All the Things We Never Knew" is an honest, compelling read that chronicles Sheila Hamilton s personal story of what it s like to live with and love a spouse with mental health challenges. Written well, accurately describing the depression and mania of what later becomes a bipolar diagnosis, she captures the struggle of piecing together biological, psychological, and environmental factors that ultimately lead to a hard but hopeful ending. It is one of those books you don t want to put down. As a radio personality, it also turns out she has a gift for writing as well. In between each chapter is information or a nugget of wisdom Sheila found helpful in her healing journey. Put this on your reading list today and continue the conversation!"
Gina Firman Nikkel, President and CEO of the Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care
""All the Things We Never Knew" is the rare memoir that's as harrowing as it is heartwarming, and Sheila Hamilton is the rarest of writersa disciplined reporter with a masterful understanding of the workings of the human heart. This extraordinary story, about the mystery and scars of mental illness, is sobering and compelling and simply unputdownable.
Karen Karbo, bestselling author of "The Gospel According to Coco Chanel" and "How Georgia Became O'Keefe""

""All the Things We Never Knew" is a boldly beautiful page-turner about loving and losing someone with mental illness. With unblinking honesty and profound compassion, Sheila Hamilton brings us vividly into her confusion, sorrow, and ultimate healing. I ll be recommending this absorbing memoir for years to come." Cheryl Strayed, bestselling author of "Wild"
Highly recommended for anyone who wants to understand mental illness from a caregiver s perspective and educate themselves on how to support loved ones who are afflicted. "Library Journal"
