Endorsements

A practical, straightforward book that will be a great help to those who have bipolar illness, as well as their families. I could not recommend this book more highly.
-Kay Redfield Jamison, PhD

This book has been a faithful friend in the difficult time since my diagnosis. I particularly appreciate the insights into communicating effectively with doctors, family, and friends after an episode. The charts, lists, and practical tools are amazing for those of us who like to be proactive and organized. But the best part of the book is the quotations from others with the disorder who share their experiences and feelings. I've said some of these exact things myself; seeing them here helps me feel just a little bit less isolated and more hopeful.
