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.

(Those marked with ** me or my wife have read, the others only looked at briefly and are on the ‘list to be read’).
