Written by David Lovelace, a man who is bipolar, this memoir lets the rest of us know what he struggles with day in and day out. Gut wrenching is the one word that describes his life off lithium. This is not a clinical approach to the disease... it is his day to day existence with parents and a brother who also have the disorder. Don't let abundance of the "F" word discourage you.... it's part of the story. If you know anyone who struggles with this monster... read the book.
