By the way, the mood chart recommended in this book is no longer available at the website given, but with a little Google-Fu you'll be able to find it easily. This is a very useful survival guide for a person dealing with bipolar disorder who wants to look for help and for people living with someone suffering from the bipolar disorder, I wish there was a section in the book to provide strategies on how to help a person who is suffering from bipolar disorder to acknowledge their condition, the big premise of this book is that the person suffering from the disorder is aware of his or her condition, something that is not always the case due to their own stigma associated to the illness.
Nevertheless this is a great guide with good insights and recommendations.
Relatively short but in depth, it still took me 5 months to get through this from time of diagnosis until now. Partially periods of time willfully not wanting to deal with it, just busy, and trying to absorb it as thoroughly as possible.

I have bipolar disorder and this is the first book I read on the disease. Even in this day and age of internet and easy access to information I found this book tremendously useful. It provides both a broad picture of the disease and many details that bipolar patients face in their lives. After having read the book, I find it easier to accept my illness and I believe I will be more responsible with my life knowing better what my illness is.
