I've never encountered a book this bad. This book tells you almost nothing about bipolarism that you can't pick up from reading a few minutes online. The writing is full of grammar errors, run-on sentences, spelling mistakes, and weird things like change of tense or change of object mid sentence. I don't think the author ever had the text proofread. (example: "Several studies reveal that 3.4 million significant proportions of children and young adults with depression is actually experiencing the early symptoms of a Bipolar Disorder however the manic phase is never yet experienced.") The book is full of misleading or plain false statements (" Children that are diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder in the U.S. have ADHD." or "Doctors are generally very experienced with bipolar disorder.") It's full of advice, like "Some medications are more intense with side effects than others, and are only used in extreme cases," where the author doesn't discuss actual medications or side effects. Chapter 2, titled "Treatments" doesn't discuss a single treatment of the disorder. The second part of the book starts with this sentence the author wrote about his own book: "Feast your eyes on the words and phrases that contain the necessary information that will help you find the right medicine for you, handle loved ones and various situation of bipolar behavior, and discover if your child has the disorder or is simply emotionally unstable." This book is full of generalities, lacks practical information, and is at times so poorly written I can't tell what the author is talking about. It is clear the author is familiar with bipolarism, but the author does not impart any knowledge to the reader. This self-published book is a complete waste of time and money.
