Manic Depression and Creativity by D. Jablow Hershman, Julian Lieb "I read this book as a hard cover when it was aptly named The Key to Genius Manic Depression and the Creative Life. I found it very informative and well written in layman's terms. In the end one learns that nothing comes easy and with out a price even for the best of them. Hershman delivers them as artists and Lieb dissects them as a scientist. I did earn this, genius is a funny thing. In the beginning you think it's crazy as time passes and evolution sets in, you realize that we just did not have the ability to comprehend at the time. As the Cliché goes "genius is never realized in its own time". For those who have delusions of how great it would be to be a genius be prepared to be disillusioned. You feel for these people and the suffering they had endured to bring us their work that we so love. It leaves one humbled. All in all "WOW" an enlightening read."

Night Falls Fast: Understanding Suicide by Kay Redfield Jamison (Kay is also the author of "An Unquiet Mind." This is a very large and comprehensive book about many aspects of suicide. In fact, Kay herself attempted suicide. Kay helps us to understand "the suicidal mind" and who is more likely to be at risk. This book reaches very deep into the study of suicide. I guarantee you will learn a great deal from this 311 page book. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in learning more about suicide).
Mood Swing by Ronald R. Fieve, M.D. (Excellent book describing manic depression and treatment in detail. Originally written in 1975 and has been revised and updated since with new information. "The psychiatrist recommended that I read Moodswing, by Dr. Ronald Fieve. Immediately I bought a copy of the book - my hunger for the truth caused me to devour the book like a starving child - it was so well written and had such helpful information I consumed each page as if my life depended on it. To my amazement, I recognized my mother in almost every chapter, sometimes feeling as if Dr. Fieve was actually writing about her! Reading Moodswing gave me comfort and hope because my mother's erratic behavior suddenly had a name and a treatment. After reading Moodswing I understood, for the first time, why Mom behaves the way she does and what causes the "different" behavior. If you or someone you love is bipolar, you must read this book. It could save a life - it will most definitely change yours for the better)."
