Synopsis:

As a founder of UCLAs Affective Disorder Clinic and a co-author of a standard medical text, Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison may be the foremost authority on manic-depressive illness. She is also one of its survivors. And it is this dual perspective -- as healer and healed -- that makes Jamison's memoir so lucid, learned, and profoundly affecting.Even as she was pursuing her psychiatric training, Jamison found herself succumbing to the exhilarating highs and paralyzing lows that afflicted many of her patients. Though the disorder brought her seemingly boundless energy and mercurial creativity, it also propelled her into spending sprees, episodes of violence, and an attempt at suicide. Powerfully candid, exceptionally wise, An Unquiet Mind is one of those rare books that has the power to transform lives -- and even save them.


Review:

"Fiery, passionate, authentic...a painfully raw, stark, and compulsive account."

Anthony Clare, Sunday Times (London)

Review:

"Jamison's drive to study and record her condition is helping others to contend with her disease. She is, by force of her own will, both scribe and conqueror of a crippling illness."

Marie Arana-Ward, Washington Post Book World, 08/18/1996
