Editorial Reviews

Review

"Forney’s writing is unpretentious, occasionally goofy and manifestly replete with love for her fellow humans. Her art is full of love, too; her rich, swooping line seems to cradle the reader's eye. … This nuts-and-bolts coping book manages to transcend its category and become something even non-depressed readers will enjoy."
NPR Books

"A broadly accessible work, Rock Steady advances understanding and acceptance of mood disorders and does as much as can be done to defang a terrifying beast. ... Forney, who’s lived through all this, explains it with the patience of a wise older sister."
Forbes

"Rock Steady is a balanced, uncluttered resource, infused with empathy, humor, and encouragement. This guide is mental health literacy at its best, making it a must-read for those with mood disorders and their loved ones, health professionals, and anyone looking to gain a greater understanding of an often misunderstood but common condition."
Publishers Weekly

"Rock Steady is truly a must-read for anyone who struggles with a mental disorder or someone who finds comfort in daily structure. Forney addresses readers with the tone of a caring friend, and her approach will likely make her fans eager for more grounding advice."
Booklist

"Rock Steady is a heartfelt guide to staying calm and centered in moments of emotional crisis."
The Seattle Review of Books

"In her new comic, Forney provides endearing and useful guidance for managing mood disorders, including depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. … Rock Steady sets readers on a path to balance and stability and uplifts those who are already doing the work."
Comicsverse

"This graphic memoir is part memoir, part self-help for anyone who struggles with mood issues―or really, anyone looking to practice a little more self-care."
Book Riot

"Rock Steady is a unique work: a cartoon handbook on surviving the ups and downs of bipolar disorder by someone who’s been there and wants to empower and assist others by sharing what she’s learned. And it’s pretty damn brilliant."
Four Color Apocalypse

"Ellen Forney is an inspiration to me as an artist and as a human being! Let her drawings springboard you into self-acceptance!"
Maria Bamford, Lady Dynamite
