An Unquiet Mind was a fabulous book. I tell people to read it all the time. <font color="brown"> </font>

Moodswing by Dr Fieve was one of the first books I read and I was SO impressed even though it was quite old. I didn't know he had a website - Thanks so much for sharing that.

I know it may be old, but this man has done so much for the Bipolar population, with his research and patients.
Much of it is still used today, I may be wrong but I think he has continued to contribute more findings to those in the Psychiatric field and research. But don't hold me to that, my memory is not always on target, ha!ha!
On Psychiatry Matters website, there are always updates on disorders,research and treatments.
A Dr. Calabrese and Dr Akiskal have been doing research on the efficacy of various meds., very interesting.
I hope to have time this summer to post any books, journals, etc. that I find, my present pdoc told me the many pdocs I've read about either in books or professional websites are legitimate pdocs/researchers genius in their field.
I'm not sure, but I think Dr. Fieve may still have his practice in NYC, but not sure. I did see that on the internet when I typed in his name, a couple of years ago.
Well, if you or anyone that visits here and can contribute more suggested readings, please do.

Thanks,
DE

Danielle Steel had a bipolar son & she wrote a book about him, His Bright Light, a book I am sure we can all relate to everything in his life, it spans his lifetime. I wrote Danielle and she wrote me back, we still correspond, she is great.

As a writer with a mental illness, I REALLY enjoyed "The Midnight Disease."

"A Mood Apart" The Thinker's Guide to Emotion and its Disorders, by Peter C. Whybrow, M.D. is an excellent and comprehensive book about mood disorders.

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.

I have that book & found it very encouraging. It is upfront about the symptoms & issues, but gives hope for a good quality of life with treatment.

Oops, didn't give the title of the book I was talking about. It is "New Hope for People with Bipolar Disorder." I got it an a NAMI conference. The "Detours" book was a bit much for me--a lot of drug use (the illegal kind--I'm all for prescribed meds)in there.
