I am not sure that reading memoirs of persons who had bipolar disorder is the most helpful strategy for patients and families. The books above would be a much better way to go. But, if one is looking for a memoir, here is one that is very popular.
A wonderfully written autobiographical story about bipolar disorder by Kay Redfield Jamison, PhD.
- It is a #1 bestseller in its category on Amazon.com.
- Written in a captivating style. The author is obviously an accomplished writer.
- A fascinating thing about this book is that the author both suffers from bipolar disorder and is a well-known expert on bipolar disorder herself
