Format: Paperback
Although Staursky's story includes much information that could be useful to people with bipolar disorder and their family/friends, the book is not well-written. Typos and spelling/word usage errors abound, to the point that I had great trouble getting through the book. No one is perfect, but when the sentence-level errors get in the way of the story, you've lost your audience. The book is also highly inter-textual, which is unusual in bipolar narratives.

Format: Paperback
Tried this book out because he lived in the area, but that was not a good enough reason. This man obviously has a hard time spelling, which makes it almost unreadable. Please save yourself the money and do not buy this book...it's terrible! As if the grammar was bad enough, the story itself is boring, and you actually find yourself rooting against him, as he is highly unlikable.
