This book offers a terrific view into bipolar disorder. I enjoyed both Blake's personal story, client examples and helpful tips for those impacted by bipolar disorder. If you are looking to learn more about bipolar disorder this book would be a great resource. I'd also encourage anyone who works with those with mental illness to read this book.

Blake's book is a great contribution to the world of bipolar literature. While I found his book extremely well-written, as someone who is a "bipolar veteran" I found myself reading many things I already knew, but I was grateful for the opportunity to read the book regardless. I loved his positive, hopeful outlook for anyone who is slapped with the bipolar label. I also thought it was inspiring to read of his own journey with the disorder and to see how far he has come and how much he has helped (and continues to help) other people with this mood disorder and their families.

Blake has a wonderful way of communication - his writing is very fluid and descriptive, and as a writer I appreciated that. I will recommend this book to anyone who is navigating the murky, often-terrifying waters of bipolar disorder, as well as their family members and friends.

A message of hope. A lot of good ideas on how to find help. Also suggestions about what to do if the help you find is not working out.

Format: Paperback
This book is about how the author was diagnosed with bipolar at fifteen, and how after being hospitalized five times was finally successful in a proper diagnosis and treatment. Mr Levine also had a great desire to not only open up about his personal struggles with his illness, but got his degree so he could help others.
On a personal note I am also bipolar and I tried all the same drugs that he discusses in his book, but I was unsuccessful with those drugs.

My wife and I did some research with a book by Abram Hoffer called Niacin The Real Story and determined from that Niacin is very helpful in the treatment of not only the issues with bipolar but other illnesses as well. Niacin may not work in all cases, but in my opinion It is worth checking out.

This book is very repetitive and really nothing new....the concept of follow through and coaching is admirable and absolutely needed, but what family or consumer can afford this???
