    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. I listened to this in order to have better insight toward manic depression and recovery from a mental illness. The author's experience with manic depression interested me, but her background and life story in general seemed dry and emotionless. I feel some individuals with manic depression would have a tough time relating to her story, because she was born into a life that allowed her to utilize the best resources available for her disorder.

    I do respect the author's experience with manic depression, and am glad she wrote this book despite fears about the stigma toward mental illness, and it's potential to negatively impact her personal and professional life. She comes across as very intelligent and educated about the disorder, and shares some great thoughts. The revelation at the end of her memoir had the greatest impact on me because it gave me a different perspective on living with manic depression.
