I am an avid reader and am looking for books about bipolar disorder that others may have found helpful? There are so many online I am wondering if there are some that are more helpful than others?

This isn't a book. It's a website. I like the articles by Dr. Phelps.

Is it 'helpful' books you're after or just books about it, and also, are you looking for non-fiction or would you also read fiction that featured bipolar?

The Silver Linings Playbook - Matthew Quick
Darkness Visible - William Styron
An Unquiet Mind - Kay Redfield Jamison
A Note of Madness - Tabitha Suzuma
A Voice in the Distance - Tabitha Suzuma
Underneath the Lemon Tree - Mark Rice-Oxley
The Shock of the Fall - Nathan Filer
The Hours - Michael Cunningham
Jeffrey Eugenides - The Virgin Suicides

There's also 'The Noonday Demon' - Andrew Solomon, which I forgot to add.

Good choice to start with. 👍
