The title says it all...

I have downloaded 3 books on Bipolar Disorder, each with a different focus. This book focuses on the partner. However it is very informative and deals with the many symptoms of Bipolar. I don't fully agree with other comments I have read. The 'workload' is shared as much as it possibly can be, and the well-being of the partner (the target reader) is equally promoted. It faces the harsh realities and offers a logical approach to caring for someone with Bipolar Disorder. The narration is 'determined', as if each sentence is the punchline in a presentation. However, it is clear, and the book is well formatted and indexed.

I cannot say whether the techniques in the book work - I was on a fact finding mission - but I can say that I feel the content has helped me understand the condition more, and what could be done to make life better.
