An attractive, highly successful Beverly Hills entertainment lawyer, Terri Cheney had been battling debilitating bipolar disorder for the better part of her life--and concealing a pharmacy's worth of prescription drugs meant to stabilize her moods and make her "normal." In explosive bursts of prose that mirror the devastating mania and extreme despair of her illness, Cheney describes her roller-coaster existence with shocking honesty, giving brilliant voice to the previously unarticulated madness she endured. Brave, electrifying, poignant, and disturbing, Manic does not simply explain bipolar disorder--it takes us into its grasp and does not let go.

The image in the catalog for this book is incorrect: the image is for "The Good Rat" by Jimmy Breslin, not "Manic" by Terri Cheney.

I loved it. It was helpful in understanding bipolar disorder, and still entertaining. very well-written.
