An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness by Kay Redfield Jamison

I recently watched Silver Linings Playbook, and I was very interested in learning more about bipolar disorder from which the main character suffers.

This is the first memoir I've read about someone with bipolar disorder, and it gave me a better understanding of what a manic episode looks and feels like and what the following (or preceding) depression is like as well.

Well-written with a nice balance of memoir, medicine, and life happenings.
