I highly suggest biting the bullet and purchasing this book in print. It is a workbook and is meant to be written and scribbled in. Take it chapter by chapter, maybe one a week. I found the exercises to be very helpful and therapeutic. I found the section that delineates different levels of mania and depression particularly helpful along with the table where you enter your own triggers and symptoms. I’ve been able to make copies of some of the worksheet pages and use them to foster conversation ...more
I found this book very helpful in understanding bipolar and how I can work to improve my lifestyle and have less episodes. I'm glad issues of anxiety and anger were covered, too, because I have problems with both.
A very useful resource for those with Bi-polar and their families. Well-written, logical layout, easy to understand with very helpful exercises and strategies. Mine is marked up and highlighted already and it has sparked great conversations between my husband and myself regarding this disorder.
I use this one as a work resource, and it's become my go-to for all BP patient tools. Well organized, with good exercises, especially for trigger identification. Maybe the best patient resource in the category.
This is an excellent book, clearly written, well thought out, and very useful. I don't know if I will ever be truly finished with this book but for now I am
