Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The "angels of madness" are the voices that Mark Berger, a manic depressive, heard during his manic episodes. They also represent the emotional upheaval his family experienced when they learned of his illness. Mark's mother Diane and her sister Lisa alternate their personal story with care-giving advice and specifics about the disease (e.g., drugs, professional help, hospitals, halfway houses, and suicide). Their one weakness is a failure to clearly define manic depression, which may cause readers to confuse it with other related disorders. Nonetheless, the Bergers have made vital information on manic depression accessible to the layperson, thereby filling an important gap in mental health literature. The appendixes list ongoing studies, support groups, and organizations across the country. (Index not seen.) Recommended for popular psychology collections.
