Review: Bipolar Breakthrough: The Essential Guide to Going Beyond Moodswings to Harness Your Highs, Escape the Cycles of Recurrent Depression, and TUser Review - Maggie - Goodreads
Detailed look at Bipolar II, but also includes plenty of information relevant to Bipolar I. A little heavy on the detail, would benefit from more first person accounts, and alternative treatments (eg relaxation, exercise). Wont bother with it again as there are better books out there.
