The authors, most of who are eminently respected in the field of cognitive therapy, have offered a compassionate and highly useful guide to working with individuals who suffer from manic depression. Their emphasis on respecting the dignity of each person and addressing the significant hopelessness and stigma that often accompany this condition is much needed. Rather than focusing exclusively on the psychopharmacological regimens that are part of the treatment of this disorder, the authors help to explicate the compounding variables such as drug and alcohol abuse, psychosocial and identity issues that complicate treatment. They address important issues such as self-disclosure and bipolar disorder in the practicing clinician, which are usually not mentioned in books about this condition. Their descriptions of the phenomenology of bipolar disorder are helpful and enlightening. All in all, I found this a useful, compassionate and long overdue guide for therapists who work with individuals struggling with this condition.

This is an excellent book about cognitive therapy for bipolar disorder. It's a little newer than Basco's book on the same subject- both books are excellent and the reader could consult either or both to learn more about the subject. This book may have been written for psychiatrists and therapists, but I think it's well within reach for the layman, and so can be read by bipolar persons and their families as well. The writing is excellent and book is well organized too. Highly recommended. Avery Z. Conner, author of "Fevers of the Mind".

A complement to recent "encyclopedias" on the subject, this is an outstanding guide for the layman. More writing of this kind will be necessary to help understand this plague of our times. But this is basic, core material. This layman highly recommends it.

Newman, C. F., Leahy, R. L., Beck, A. T., Reilly-Harrington, N. A., & Gyulai, L. (2002). Bipolar disorder: A cognitive therapy approach. Washington, DC: American Psychological Association.

Overall, I liked this book and believe it to be a worthwhile read. There a few things that I did not like about the book, and I mention those here ahead of explaining what I liked about the book. This book is a composite work among several authors, and it is apparent in the multiplicity writing styles. I find it somewhat annoying when the writing style changes in mid-chapter. Another annoyance is the way the authors switch between using the terms "bipolar disorder" and "manic-depressive illness" only stating they are using "manic-depressive illness" (or "manic-depression") to honor Kay Redfield Jameson, and giving no other reason for this interchange of terminology. Finally, I missed having a glossary. A glossary would have been especially useful for those of us readers who are not familiar with all of the terminology; words such as, trait, state, and mode. These words do not appear in the index either, making it difficult to find them when one wants to review specific parts of the text that one has read at an earlier time.
The first two chapters serve as an introduction and supply background information for the rest of the book. Chapter one surveys the various presentations of bipolar disorder including diagnosis, comorbidity in diagnosis, etiology, epidemiology, and prognoses for different presentations of bipolar disorder. The second chapter surveys the cognitive therapy model as it could be applied to clients who have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
