As a founder of UCLA's Affective Disorder Clinic and a co-author of a standard medical text, Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison may be the foremost authority on manic-depressive illness. She is also one of its survivors. And it is this dual perspective — as healer and healed — that makes Jamison's memoir so lucid, learned, and profoundly affecting.
This book defines severe depression a bipolarity-a diagnosis that (in my opinion) is becoming another "catch-all" cubby for too many people!
