“God bless Dr. Fieve; he's done it again! Bipolar II gives us just the tool we need in order to address our disorder. For patients like me, family members, even doctors and mental health workers, this is an answer to a prayer.” ―Patty Duke, author of Brilliant Madness: Living with Manic Depressive Illness
“In his brilliant new book, Fieve--a founding father in the study of bipolar II, and one of the first to discover its advantages--addresses the practical problem that bedevils all bipolars: How do you channel the hypomania's creative fire without getting burned? If you suspect that you or someone you love is bipolar II, buy this book--now!” ―John D. Gartner, Ph.D., assistant professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Johns Hopkins University Medical School, and author of The Hypomanic Edge
“I am very pleased that Dr. Ronald Fieve has published this book. Dr. Fieve is a pioneer in the recognition and treatment of bipolar disorder, and his previous work, Moodswing, has been an excellent book for patients with this condition to learn about bipolar disorder and its treatments. Bipolar II disorder is an important and common form of the bipolar spectrum. Dr. Fieve's contributions to our understanding and treatment of this disorder are outstanding, and I believe this book will be a must read for patients who have bipolar conditions.” ―David L. Dunner, MD, director, Center for Anxiety and Depression, and professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington
