    Story
    What did you love best about The Unquiet Mind?

    The author did a great job describing why so many with bipolar disorder struggle taking the prescribed medications.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Unquiet Mind?

    The author's stories of how she revealed her disorder to the men in her life, her employer, and the world.


    Did Kay Redfield Jamison do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    This story was about Kay Redfield Jamison. There were not any other characters in the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Although the event had little to do with bipolar disorder, the moment in the book that moved me was when her partner, David, died unexpectedly.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a particularly good book to read if you or any of your loved ones are taking lithium for treatment of bipolar disorder. The author does a good job of talking about the pros and cons of treatment, and the benefit of treatment in spite of losing her hypomanic moments. She also does a good job discussing the pros and cons of parenting with bipolar disorder.
