Publisher's Summary

Some children inherit the family nose. Autumn Stringam and her brother Joseph inherited bipolar disorder, a severe mental illness that led to the suicides of their mother and grandfather. Autumn was in a psychiatric hospital on suicide watch by the time she was 22. Joseph, at 15, was prone to violent episodes so terrifying that his family feared for their lives. But after Autumn and Joseph began taking a nutritional supplement developed by their father - and based, incredibly, on a formula given to aggressive hogs - their symptoms disappeared, and today they both lead normal, productive lives. A Promise of Hope is the story of Autumn's flight from madness to wellness and an astonishing scientific account of a treatment that has also helped thousands of others. It is a powerful call for a new understanding of mental illness, its causes and its treatments.

A bit of a sales pitch?

I feel the last few chapters were a bit of a sales pitch for the true hope programme/products.

With that said, the rest of Memoir, both the authors and her mothers story, have added some much needed context to my own story. I do recommend this book, just take the sales pitch with a pinch of salt.

Thank goodness it's not just me !

I really enjoyed this book and felt a connection and realised that I am not alone.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has this disorder or is connected to someone who suffers, I think the story gives answers to both the patient and those around them and should find it a good reference,
