Welcome to the Jungle: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Bipolar but Were Too Freaked Out to Ask | [Hilary Smith]

Welcome to the Jungle: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Bipolar but Were Too Freaked Out to Ask

Bipolar is one of the most commonly diagnosed emotional/psychiatric condition and diagnosis tends to come when one is in one's late teens or early 20s. And yet almost nothing has been written about it from eye level and a young person's perspective. Welcome to the Jungle fills that gap with its upfront, empowering approach to the challenges of being diagnosed bipolar. Both humorous and immensely honest, it offers a true "in the trenches" perspective young listeners will trust.

    "Perfect look at Bipolar- with a bunch of FUNNY!"
    Would you listen to Welcome to the Jungle again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to Welcome to the Jungle again. It gives an informative look into the the world of bipoloar by someone who actually has been there. Even better she explains bipolar topics in a way that can be easily understood-- plus it is so funny! No pyschobabble here. It was great to feel "Hey, I got what she has and she has it together!" It was a validating humourous story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hillary Smith... everything she says is true and I completely identify, but on top of that she is FUNNY and down to earth! Love it!


    What does Jennette Selig bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    At first, I didn't relate to the story teller's verbalization of the story, but after the first chapter, I got it and I could see her as Hillary Smith. It worked.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    After reading certain parts I was so inspired, I wanted to share this book with my husband and kids. And I did! It made me feel better because now they can understand what my brain goes thru. It is still something I can't verbalize, I'm glad Hillary can.

    "Best practical advice ever"
    If you could sum up Welcome to the Jungle in three words, what would they be?

    Jungle is real.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Welcome to the Jungle?

    It finally gave me a name for what I was feeling with a mixed state.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted to listen to it in one sitting and even listened to it while walking to the mailbox.


    Any additional comments?

    This was the best book on bipolar that I've ever even heard of.
