Hey everyone! I was just wondering if any of you have read or know of some good books about bipolar...maybe even for spouses or loved ones supporting someone with bipolar? I could use something that isn't all filled with Dr. talk Tongue Thanks!!!

"An Unquiet Mind" by Kate Jamison is a great book on bipolar disorder. Ms. Jamison is a psychiatrist who also has bipolar disorder. Blessings, Odyssey

You also might want to read "A Brillant Madness" by Patty Duke, the actress. It tells of her personal story with bipolar disease. I recommend it....

Yes! I have a good one! It's called The Bipolar Workbook," by Dr. Monica Busco. It takes you step by step through the process of understanding bipolar illness.

Hope this helps.

I'm in the middle of "Living Well with Depression and Bipolar" by John McManamy and it is an amazing book... highly suggest it for everyone to read.

My husband and I found "Living with Someone Who's Living with Bipolar Disorder" by Chelsea Lowe and Bruce M. Cohen to be very good. It's a newer book published in 2010.

I love the Bipolar Workbook. I've been working on that this past week.

There's also a Bipolar Disorder for Dummies that is Filled with Great Information.
