Praise for The Bipolar Child

“The shot heard round the psychiatric world”


“There have been a great many ground-breaking books in the field of medicine and psychiatry, but very rarely does one come along that literally puts an illness on the map."

John McManamy
Publisher of the award-winning McManamy’s Web

"There is NOTHING that compares with the information in this book! It is the benchmark of knowledge and resources. There is a great reassurance in reading it that many families are facing the same nightmare and can find ways of living through it. This book should be required reading for anyone in the mental health field. Every parent of a child with bipolar disorder should have a copy."
