Bipolar and manic depression sufferers and their carers - this is a MUST read. The book charts the many ups and downs in the life of a bipolar sufferer. We are taken through his roller coaster life from childhood to the hospital ward and beyond with light-hearted humorous moments mixed with inevitable darker and sadder passages. The result is a funny, moving and inspirational book that keeps you hooked and marvelling at David's absolute determination to lead a full and normal life. David wears his heart on his sleeve in this very personal account of how self belief and considerable loving support from family can transform tragedy to real fulfilment. The book is a real person's footprint on his life to date, not just that of his mental illness. An honest and lasting achievement narrative which should touch us all.

A heart on the sleeve narrative in an immensely personal, fresh and engaging style. --R Moore B.Sc., FRCGP, DCH, DFFP, DRCOG.
