Topics include the range of bipolar disorders; how to get a diagnosis, including descriptions of all diagnostic tests and checklists used by professionals; dispelling myths and misconceptions about this disease; description of medications, therapy, and other interventions; an exploration of family life with bipolar disorders; and suggested ways to cope with diagnosis and treatment.

Reviews

"I recommend the book, without reservation, not only to bipolar patients, but also to their families, their friends, their caretakers, and to the clinicians who prescibe medicine and other treatment modalities for them. Bipolar patients will find invaluable suggestions in this book about how to cope with their condition, how to obtain treatment and how to pay for it."
