Perhaps because I have already read a couple of books on bipolar disorder, I found this book very basic. The only new information I gained was in the realm of how diet can affect bipolar disorder. However, the dietary restrictions were first presented in a "must be avoided at all costs" manner, and then brought down to a less strict stance on their consumption. I also did not appreciate the all-or-nothing take on alcohol. Finally, I did not agree with the stance that meditation can be used in lieu of medication for some individuals. A close family member of mine has bipolar disorder and spent hours a day meditating before his diagnosis. This person became increasingly manic and eventually psychotic.
This is short, up to date, authoritative, and comprehensive. I was diagnosed with BP and and have been taking meds for more than 15 years. But I am still struggling, as is my spouse. This clear book in layman' terms provides a gateway to a better life. Thank you.
