Here are a list of books on bipolar disorder that we’ve bought in last 6 months. Since the condition affects people so differently, I’ve found it useful to get different perspectives. But the greatest benefit has come from interaction in the blogosphere, so don’t be shy – comments, questions and suggestions all welcome.
