Author: Kay Redfield Jamison

Release Date: January 1997
What is it About?
A psychologist writes of her own struggle with depression and bipolarism.
Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison writes about her life dealing with bipolar. Her struggle with schools, relationships and her inner critic.
My own psychiatrist recommend this book hoping I would relate that this was another woman struggling with illness and gaining the upper hand on. I really did not find that much I could relate with her since she has bipolar and I have schizophrenia. She pretty much examined her whole life and realized she had this illness very early in her life. I respect that she has accomplished much in her life. I don’t know if I will ever accomplish to the degree she has done. You may not agree with my rating for every person it will probably be different.
