On the other hand, as one who lived in communes in the US and abroad, I find Mark's description of communal life and what drove young people from cities to rural living convincing.
If you liked this book, you will want to read its sequel. If you like Kurt Vonnegut's writing as well, you may want to read or reread Breakfast of Champions as a companion to Mark's memoirs.
I too experienced bi-polar at about age 40 after a successful career as a physician, Vietnam Veteran etc. I knew I was fundamentally OK even though I was hospitalized 6 times for it.
Every time I was hospitalized for bi-polar I prospered in some fashion either a better relationship a better career, or even better off
financially. Why because when life is a bitch we Think and Grow Rich. Napoleon Hill said "every adversity contains the seeds of an equivalent or greater benefit."
This inspirational book brings to bear the awful burden of mental illness on both the sufferer and loved ones and how close each of us step to the border between sanity and insanity.
Fortunately, for Mark, he has made a complete recovery and his triumph is the crowning achievement of this saga.
This book will have you riveted to the page. Don't miss out on this roller coaster ride. (Be sure to fasten your seatbelt tightly!)
