    "Just not for me"
    What made the experience of listening to Loving Someone with Bipolar Disorder the most enjoyable?

    The book does address major points of living with someone with Bipolar disorder - it just wasn't for me. The worksheets would likely help, but this book wasn't really conducive to driving which is when I have to do my listening.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It's a factual look at an illness. I'm not sure the story could be changed to make it more enjoyable.

    "The title says it all..."

    I have downloaded 3 books on Bipolar Disorder, each with a different focus. This book focuses on the partner. However it is very informative and deals with the many symptoms of Bipolar. I don't fully agree with other comments I have read. The 'workload' is shared as much as it possibly can be, and the well-being of the partner (the target reader) is equally promoted. It faces the harsh realities and offers a logical approach to caring for someone with Bipolar Disorder. The narration is 'determined', as if each sentence is the punchline in a presentation. However, it is clear, and the book is well formatted and indexed.

    I cannot say whether the techniques in the book work - I was on a fact finding mission - but I can say that I feel the content has helped me understand the condition more, and what could be done to make life better.
