This was an outstanding read!!

I am a graduate school psych major and was first told about this book 8 years ago when I was a freshman undergrad. My "General Psychology" professor mentioned it to the 400 students in her lecture hall... and I happened to be paying attention. Shortly after I went and bought the book, well before I had even decided to become a psychologist. I am so glad that I listened to her and went to get this book! It has given me such a perspective into the mind of someone with this disorder, it's incredible. It is really unimagineable the amount of insight i gained from this book. Jamison took such a leap writting this book about her own disorder, I give her so much credit. IT's not easy facing bipolar disorder, let alone facing your own demons with it. But Jamison pulled it off with the utmost poise. My hat goes off to her!
