Aug 14, Meg rated it it was amazing. The book provides the explanation and a way for people suffering from bi polar to get out from under the burden and stigma of this devastating illness providing that they acknowledge that they have the illness. The charts and the explanations make it very easy. The book also provides insight for the rest of us, living with those who have this brain disorder to understand and perhaps guide in the process.

Feb 15, Abnoos rated it really liked it. Easy literature, genera information and practical tips for the patients and the purpose of self help. I liked it because you can read and highlight it and give it to others. I specially recommend it because out of all the books I read about BP, it's the first one which sets realistic perspectives in the course of treatment, and more emphasis on the BP person rather than an ideal support team.

Not my cup of tea but I guess if you are an organized bipolar, who likes graphs, charts and list. It may be for you which may be a soft bipolar?
