Product description

Amazon.com Review

From Kay Redfield Jamison - an international authority on manic-depressive illness, and one of the few women who are full professors of medicine at American Universities - a remarkable personal testimony: the revelation of her own struggle since adolescence with manic depression, and how it shaped her life. With vivid prose and wit, she takes us into the fascinating and dangerous territory of this form of madness - a world in which one pole can be the alluring dark land ruled by what Byron called the "melancholy star of the imagination," and the other a desert of depression and, all too frequently, death. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

I was used to my mind being my best friend. Now, all of a sudden, my mind had turned on me: it mocked me for my vapid enthusiasms; it laughed at all of my foolish plans; it no longer found anything interesting or enjoyable or worthwhile. Dr Kay Redfield Jamison is one of the foremost authorities on manic depression (bipolar disorder) - and has experienced its terrors and cruel allure first-hand. While pursuing her career in medicine, she was affected by the same exhilarating highs and catastrophic lows that afflicted many of her patients. From her jubilant childhood to the disquiet that has dominated her adult life, she charts a journey through her own mind, and those of others. An Unquiet Mind is a definitive examination of manic depression from both sides: doctor and patient, the healer and the healed. A classic memoir of enormous candour and courage, it teems with the wit and wisdom of its creator. 'It stands alone in the literature of manic depression for its bravery, brilliance and beauty' Oliver Sacks 'A fiery, passionate, authentic account of the devastation and exaltation, the blindness and illumination of the psychotic experience' Sunday Times --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 January 2019
A compelling memoir on the turbulent life of a manic depressive, written by one of the world’s leading authorities in the disorder. Part science writing, part memoir, this book offers an intimate insight into what it is like to live with bipolar
