Definitely worth the read

If you could sum up Loving Someone with Bipolar Disorder in three words, what would they be?

Informative, Validating, Honest

What other book might you compare Loving Someone with Bipolar Disorder to and why?

This is the first book I've read about this topic.

How could the performance have been better?

I'm sure the narrator is a lovely lady, but her voice makes me zone out. The dialogues between people should've been read by different people. Her voice is so monotone that I would have to rewind because I wouldn't hear half of what she said. A different narrator would make this book much better.

What did you learn from Loving Someone with Bipolar Disorder that you would use in your daily life?

I realized I was taking things personally when I shouldn't. I realized the disorder is much more serious than I initially thought. I understand now what I thought used to be personality flaws are really just bipolar symptoms.

Any additional comments?

I'm so glad I read this book. I think it will be the first step in making positive changes in my relationship. Thanks!

Just not for me

What made the experience of listening to Loving Someone with Bipolar Disorder the most enjoyable?

The book does address major points of living with someone with Bipolar disorder - it just wasn't for me. The worksheets would likely help, but this book wasn't really conducive to driving which is when I have to do my listening.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

It's a factual look at an illness. I'm not sure the story could be changed to make it more enjoyable.
