Dominic Barnes It is ridiculous to combine bipolar depression and schizophrenia into a single list - they are completely different disorders.

This is simply propagating the same ignorance about mental health that the books on this list are trying to dispel.

It's a disgrace that something this vague and slap-dash should be on the Good Reads websie

Yup. They are often found in combination, have overlapping symptoms, and can amplify one other. Wish OP would have looked more into peoples' experiences on this before posting blanket false stuff
