The Bipolar Book
I have this one in particular called "the Bipolar Disorder Survival Guide." It has stories from others who have bipolar and how they got thru it. It gives tips and stuff. It also has ways in it for family and friends to help you cope when symptoms get out of control. It gives tips on finding the best doctors and how to prevent symptoms from occurring in the first place. And it tells how to spot the symptoms so they wont get all out of whack.
The book is by David J. Miklowitz, PhD. It was written in 2002.
I got it out of Barnes and Noble back in 2005... Call around - maybe you can find some coupons online that will take off a certain percentage of your actual purchase.
