    One thought on “Bipolar Disorder: A Guide for Patients and Families”

    1. This comprehensive book is one of the best books I have read on Bipolar Disorder In it s simplistic fashion the patient as well as a loved one can grasp the struggles and challenges that someone afflicted with disorder must endure.It provides the loved ones with the scientific knowledge that this is not merely a figment of one s imagination and that the disorder is indeed a brain disorder Dr Mondi makes that quite clear in this book This book I have used for myself since I am one of the lucky wi [...]

    2. I flew through this book and then went back to take notes on the parts in which I was most interested The information is solid, comprehensive, and easy to read I especially liked the sections on Living With BPD and Biology of BPD The reference section and suggested readings had some great studies to look up and I m definitely reading a few of those books As someone who lives with BPD2, this book helped me understand the condition better and gave me a jumping off point for further research Highly [...]

    3. This is a well written, and easily read book I m reading it for school, but imaginge it would be helpful for anyone interested in this topic It has good first hand accounts of dealing with bipoal disorder And the author recommends a well rounded approach to treating it, from pharmaceuticals, light therapy, talk therapy, and even nutritional recommendations.

    4. This is such a great book I ve actually given copies to friends and family to help them understand my daughter s illness It is well organized and clearly written A great introduction to the illness, but still offering enough detail and useful information.

    5. This book is very informative and not as intimidating as I thought it would be at first The topic is fascinating, but the continual text is a snooze I m having a hard time finishing this book.

    6. A very good book for those suffering from bipolar disorder Everything is covered from treatment to causes Must read.

    7. Very clear to read several chapters on medications and approaches Information for patient, family and friends.

    8. Good read for those who are suffering from this challenging disease and their family members to understand the issue and treat the sufferer in the right way.

    9. As a parent to a child with pediatric bipolar disorder I am constantly in search of new resources that will help ease the day to day digressions, which occur with this roller coaster diagnosis I am continuously learning new concepts, as I struggle to meet the demanding needs of my child As the months have passed since her diagnosis, I have found myself accepting of her future and not feeling so helpless With newer resources and a better understanding of the disease, my child has a much brighter [...]

    10. Excellent resource Not only does the author describe symptoms and treatment options, he also goes into the history of the diagnosis, including early treatment methods that didn t work and ones that did but were neglected for decades For example, in the wake of WWII, highly effective therapeutic treatments developed by German doctors were discarded after the revelation of abuses inflicted on victims of the Nazis Informative, well written, and sympathetic, this is not a one size fits all book but [...]

    11. You can expect nearly any book you will read on the topic of manic depression to be a little melodramatic It s just going to come out that way from personal experience because the condition can be really surreal But I believe this one was written from a clinical point of view As a result, it reads to the point and less to the experience talks about the symptoms and not how they feel , except in a clinical context I high recommend this book to anyone who has manic depression and wants to underst [...]

    12. Clearly written by a medical professional, full of technical jargon, but somehow approachable and understandable for anyone This is a great read for anyone who has Bipolar or has a friend or family member who does I took the author s advice and thoroughly read several chapters, skimmed several and completely skipped others Some great take aways It s not mental illness it s a mood disorder It s not a chemical imbalance Pharmacological science is sometimes a lot of trial and error Meds work when t [...]

    13. Absolutely excellent book It combines technical medical information with the history of the disease and most importantly, ways to manage it The chapters about different drugs is a little tedious, but you can just skip to the parts you want to read There are some case studies and quotes from patients that are helpful in understanding the experience I would say this book is a must read for people who have been recently diagnosed and for their families.

    14. Finally I finished this book It contains a lot of inforamation to digest in just one sitting The book is very strong at describing bipolar behaviors and explaining all the current treatments available I definitely understand the disorder much better than I previously did prior to reading this Unfortunately, the book was not very strong in information for families and friends of the bipolar patient, although it did list several web sources and reading materials for further information.

    15. This review is for the first edition.Great Gives disceiptions of medications descriptions of symptoms and the over structure of what bipolar is It is basically textbook type writing It is exerything your psychatrist wants to tell you but doesn t have time to I find learning about medications most beneficial.

    16. I read this book for tonight s book group It was one of three I ended up reading It s a good book if you just want to learn something about Bipolar Disorder Since I don t know the genre very well, I couldn t say whether this is the best book or not.

    17. Mondi includes much of the scientfic angle than I ve seen in other bipolar guides, he goes into real detail about sleep patterns, substance abuse, seasonal mood cycles, etc.

    18. A good comprehensive look at this disorder including the history, definitions, diagnosing and treatment Does not offer much in the way of case studies or patent prospective.

    19. Having just been diagnosed as Bipolar II, my doctor referred me to this book So far, so good A lot of anecdotal as well as plain spoken ideas on this most misunderstood of psychological diseases.
