Default Re: Books worth reading

Though some of it may be triggerish, Detour My Bipolar Road Trip, by Lizzie Simon deals autobiagraphically with her search for individuals coping successfully with the disease. Her search is precipitated by a crisis she experiences in high school, a crisis which she revisits throughout the book from varying perspectives as she meets new people with whom she connects, or does not.

I devoured it in about 48 hours, then proceeded to share it with a number of friends, some who knew me to be bipolar, some who did not.
