Definitely worth the read
Informative, Validating, Honest
This is the first book I've read about this topic.
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.
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.
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
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.
It's a factual look at an illness. I'm not sure the story could be changed to make it more enjoyable.
