9780615858074: The Veil

In this first person account of bipolar disorder, Michael Lukas tells a story of human triumph as he finds himself transformed from high school valedictorian to correctional facility inmate over the course of a summer.

The changes begin with an unexpected and deep depression. This is followed by Lukas' first explosive manic episode which results in his expulsion from Stanford University. We are invited to relive these intense experiences and to understand the effects on a young man's life as he fights to regain control of his future.

Through Lukas' intimate account of struggle and eventual acceptance of his illness, The Veil offers insight for all who struggle with extreme emotional states and their consequences, and for all who love them.

Michael Lukas has lived with bipolar disorder for 20 years and has worked tirelessly to get it under control. In that time, he has been homeless, jailed, committed, and deeply in debt. He now enjoys a successful technology career in the Bay Area and holds a degree from Stanford University. He lives with his wife and children in San Francisco and continues to seek balance with the support of a group of close friends and family.
