Title: An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness
Published : 1996
Co-founder of UCLA's Affective Disorder Clinic and co-author of textbooks on manic-depressive disorders, Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison herself suffers from the illness. Sher writes about her own struggles with it, how some parts of it were seductive, and other destroying, how hard it was to find the right dose of medication.
It's very personal account written by someone who has a great knowledge of the issue on both, emotional and intelectual level.
