You should read My Stroke of insight!!!!!

Alia Albinali says:

I'm not sure if I'm misdiagnosed because am an infp or I really am manic depressive I hope reading this will help

Deanna Dalton says:

This is one of my favorite books. I would suggest it to anyone because of it's interesting content and frank insight into self. For someone who also has bipolar I found this book to be very helpful to me when it was published in the late 1990s. I still own a copy and once in a blue moon I will read a certain passage or quote. Dr. Jamison writes well and the book was so candid and inviting to read that I think it would be of value to read for those with and without mental illness.

Great review and critique. You really hit the nail on the head.

Chrissy McB says:

I loved this book, as well of the rest of her works too. The one about manic depression and the artistic temperament is excellent also 🙂

Maria Guedes says:

Thank you for this review, I definitely want to read this book! I wonder whether studying her illness helped her cope with it… and whether having the illness helped her understand it as a scientist.
