“This book belongs in the hands of every person who has suffered from depression or bipolar disorder.” (Amy Weintraub, author of YOGA FOR DEPRESSIONS)

“Anyone who has ever been diagnosed with a mood disorder, depression or bipolar disorder, really needs to read this book (Colleen Sullivan, Owner, Bipolar World; http://www.bipolarworld,net)

The reader takes a journey with a wise and compassionate guide who offers extremely clear information and--equally important--hope (Demitri F. Papolos, M.D. and Janice Papolos, authors of The Bipolar Child)

“[V]ery helpful for those affected by bipolar disorder and their families... I recommend the book enthusiastically.” (E. Fuller Torrey, MD, co-author of Surviving Manic Depression)

“If you read only one book about bipolar disorder, make it this instant classic.” (John Gartner, author of The Hypomanic Edge: The Link Between (A Little) Craziness And (A Lot) of Success In America)

“I doubt there is a person in the world who knows these conditions better, inside and out, than John McManamy.” (S. Nassir Ghaemi MD, MPH, Director, Bipolar Disorder Research Program, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Public Health, Emory University)

“Manamy brings together his outstanding reportorial skills, his great gift for language and his remarkable insights about his own disorder.” (Ellen Frank, Ph.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic)

“I hope this book gets the attention and acclaim it deserves. In a crowded field, it stands out.” (Anne Sheffield, author of DEPRESSION FALLOUT.)

Seven years ago, John McManamy was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Through his successful Web site and newsletter, he has turned his struggles into a lifelong dedication to helping others battling depression and bipolar disorder reclaim their lives. In Living Well with Depression and Bipolar Disorder, he brilliantly blends the knowledge of leading expert authorities with the experiences of his fellow patients, as well as his own, and offers extensive information on:

  • Diagnosing the problem
  • Associated illnesses and symptoms
  • Treatments, lifestyle, and coping
  • The effects of depression and bipolar disorder on relationships and sex

With a compassionate and eloquent voice, McManamy describes his belief that depression is a wide spectrum that reaches from occasional bouts of depression to full-fledged bipolar disorder. The first book to help patients recognize this diversity of the disorder, Living Well with Depression and Bipolar Disorder will help sufferers begin to reclaim their lives.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Roads to recovery 30. Oktober 2006
Von Robert Sealey - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
McManamy's book is easy to read, clear, well-written and packed with content. The author knows his audience. After years of depressions and other episodes, at age 49, he finally got the right diagnosis - bipolar disorder! His personal struggles taught him which roads lead to recovery. Now he shows us the way.

He addresses the benefits and the risks of the standard treatments for

depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder and he introduces new research,

as well as complementary and nutritional treatments which can

restore normal brain chemistry. Few books written for laymen mention the

practice guidelines of psychiatry. This one does - throughout.

McManamy doesn't just trust meds and more meds. He knows that powerful brain pills help but they also cause problems for some patients. If you are looking for information and hope to live well with your "perfect mental storms", you will love this book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Knowledge is Necessity" - McMan's Motto 4. November 2006
Von Ruth Z. Deming - Veröffentlicht auf
As a bipolar patient and also a psychotherapist, I find this to be, hands down, the best guide to living with depression and bipolar disorder ever written. Every issue of concern is addressed within these consummately readable 406 pages, including a superb index and online resources.

Interviews with patients show the wide diversity of the illness, and allow the reader to know we're not alone. A famed psychiatrist is quoted admitting that in medical school he was told "The liver is the most complex organ in the body." Now the psychiatrist admits that "Ninety percent of what we know about the brain we've discovered in the last 10 years."

McMan gives us the necessary hope we need in this most demanding of illnesses, telling us of treatment options and the fact that scientists are constantly working on our behalf. "Partner with your psychiatrist" is a vital message, and he has a delightful laugh-aloud irreverence for many psychiatrists and the meds we're prescribed that make us fat!

As the mother of 2 children, I particularly enjoyed the chapter on "Should We Have Kids?" and John's own candor about himself as the father of a wonderful adult daughter. "Be fruitful and multiply," he says, "but think first."

Not only does this belong on the bookshelf of all folks with mood disorders - and their hopefully helpful family members - but we should also give it as gifts to our local libraries.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bipolar disorder from the well informed patient's point of view. 13. Januar 2007
Von Raymond Zablotny - Veröffentlicht auf
John McManamy has an outstanding ability to describe his and other's experience of having bipolar disorder in all its complexity. He never tries to take the place of the patiet's psychiatrist. He refers his readers to other sources of excellent more detailed clinical information. He tells the human side of the story. He teaches patients how to be better informed consumer's of psychiatric care. He encourages patients to be active participants in their recovery.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fills a unique niche 19. Oktober 2006
Von Nanci Schiman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I applaud John McManamy for writing an excellent, insightful and information packed book! John has the unique perspective of not only being a very knowledgeable authority on depression and bipolar disorder, but also a consumer himself because of his diagnosis. He is brutally honest about issues ranging from medications, the role of sleep in wellness, the seriousness of the illness . . . there is no sugar coating or glossing over topics. At the same time, John intersperses the book with a refreshing sense of humor and candor. Unlke many books that present the facts in a dry clinical format, this book will bring a smile to your face or have you laughing out loud at comments such as "anyone taking ***** with either of these drugs is simply begging for an audition as the next Macy's Santa" (in reference to medication induced weight gain).

I am a licensed social worker, working in job that brings me in daily contact with families of children with pediatric bipolar disorder. I read and review books on a regular basis, some good, some great, some forgetable. "Living Well with Depression and Bipolar Disorder" is one of my favorites and one that I will be recommending highly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What makes this book fantastic... 18. August 2007
Von I Survived High School - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch that instead of accommodating you to your illness, it hands you tools and a mission: REMISSION IS THE GOAL. Where other books hold your hand and tell you to use your tools, this one evaluates each tool so that you can use your intelligence and experience to choose what to use. After I read this book I saw pharmacalogical psychiatry in a whole new way: instead of drifting from drug to drug, I am deploying the ones that work best for me. I decide what side effects are OK. I decide whether to try a new drug. The doctor's opinion plays an important role, but I get better results when I carefully and conscientiously follow my instincts.

This book is filled with things I might deploy, from lifestyle and diet tinkering to medicine. And the goal of all this is to drive my illness into full and complete remission. After reading this book I am doing better than I have in a long time.

Don't miss the advice about taking your mood temperature frequently, as opposed to waiting for the symptoms to begin. Intercepting changing moods before they gain momentum is extremely important.

Take a giant step ahead from the patronizing how-to books out there and the currently fashionable medicines, and understand what's new and what's happening in depression and bipolar. Some readers will find a few chapters heavy with science, and decide to skip to the main points, but those who want to know how this disease is being fought and conquered will find it far ahead of other volumes. Oh, I'm sure there are some other good books on bipolar out there, but if you're ready to change your entire perspective on your illness for the better, give this one a try. It may not change your life as dramatically and rapidly as it did mine, but I defy anyone with bipolar illness to argue that this book isn't full of the most potent information available between two covers.

For those who are also ill, my best wishes for your recovery, and remember, THINK REMISSION, not treatment of symptoms.
