I bought this book, because I was feeling suicidal, and had been recommended to see my GP. The GP referred me to the local mental health unit, which had a long waiting list (which I am still on) for whatever therapy they could offer.

Meanwhile I read Mood Mapping and did a lot of the exercises in the book.

You will find in the book exercises that work to help you discover what mood you are in, and strategies of how to navigate between your various moods.

This book is full of ideas and techniques, that have yet to be discovered by mental health professionals. This has occurred because the author Liz Miller is a sufferer herself, and by sheer bloody persistence, has worked a way out of her mental disease. She has written up the strategies that she used to get well, and uses to keep well. So this is her gift to us to help us on our path from mental illness, to being able to function in life, and be relatively happy for more of the time. Liz has successfully used these strategies to go from being sectioned under the Mental Health act, to being voted Mind Personality of the year.

I would encourage everybody to read this book, whether you suffer from mental health problems or not.

For sufferers it will help you get strategies that will help you cope with life, and for those fortunate enough not to suffer, will give a greater understanding to yourself of how you work emotionally.

How many self help books promise the answers, and then leave you to work them out for yourself? Finally, a book that is written by someone who is clearly an authority, yet is reassuringly easy to read and follow. Dr Liz Miller writes with warmth, humour, and an openness that is so refreshing and encouraging. As a therapist myself I encourage anyone who is looking for a way to manage their moods, rather than have their moods mange them, to look no further. Here you will find a system that is clearly explained and simplified to help you every step of the way. Excellent book!

Well this is the first book I have read for many years and I managed to finish it in a week. It has lots of good advice for those with bipolar, family members (like me) and even just for people who want to improve their outlook on life. It is very practical and has detailed tasks and plans to follow. This is definitely a detailed guidebook to follow, rather than a reference book to refer to. So if you want to improve your moods, and really want to do something about it, read this book. If you are just after knowing more about bipolar then there are other books that may do that better. Just another thought - Liz Miller's life and accomplishments are amazing - so it is also a very interesting autobiography.

I have read many self help books in my time, to help me through my journey in life. Many of them churn existing ideas around, and offer little in the way of anything new, other than a different perspective in life. Once in a while, a book comes along with a totally different set of ideas, and a radically new approach. I would put Anthony Robbins 'Awaken the Giant Within' and Richard Bandler's NLP in that class. Mood Mapping is a book that is in the same class. I truly hope that it becomes a classic in the same way as the other books has and Liz Miller gets recognized for her contribution towards human understanding of psychology. This has all ready started to happen when she was made Mind Personality of the Year.
Jung and Freud never did much for me, but the ideas set out in the book do. Her ideas of Mood Mapping allow me to plot out my http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/edit-review/ref=cm_cr_error?_encoding=UTF8&asin=1905744455&reviewID=R34RSWOLQAMH2Fmoods, in a way I never have done before. This has the knock on effect of me being able to behave appropriately whatever the situation. Knowing what state I am in, I can sort of nudge myself towards the state I would like to be in. For this customer, Mood Mapping will be much read, much loved, and much used.
She sets out a book as a self help course, and suggests we should plot our moods over 14 days, Well it will take me longer than that, and I'll find a way that suits me, using her method as my starting point. I can't be bothered to go out and buy a spiral notebook as she suggests, (p32) I'll use bits of A4 paper stuck to the wall around the house, to be filed as and when, but that's me not her.

Dr Liz Miller was once 'the brightest young neurosurgeon in this country'. Due to the pressures of her job, she had a breakdown. She recovered and retrained as an A&E surgeon, and again the pressure of her work drove her into mental collapse.
She comes from a medical family, I believe, and would have preferred to train as an artist. However, her parents pressurised her into medicine, although she has a first degree in Divinity.
She was eventually sectioned and admitted to the Royal Bethlem & Maudsley unit for health workers, when psychiatrists diagnosed her with bipolar disorder - a diagnosis that I believe was erroneous.
Through all her trials and tribulations Liz Miller has continued to practise patient centred medicine of the highest quality - I know this because I met her when I edited my one and only edition of Pendulum, the newsletter of the then MDF, know known as the Bipolar Association, I believe. She was a constant voice of sanity and reassurance on the phone as I struggled to cope with service users, employees of the MDF, and psychiatrists - some of whom sounded disconcertingly like their patients.
I consider myself privileged to know her. I've had her book for weeks and already it is dog-eared - leant to I do not know which friend.
Mike Sharples, professer of learning technology or something at Nottingham, once told me that many writers have manic depression. Liz is one who has been through the mill and emerged triumphant. Every writer in the world should buy this book.
And so should every politician.
