The one I mentioned was:
Bipolar Disorder Demystified
Mastering the Tightrope of Manic Depression
Written by Lana R. Castle.
I also read Bipolar for Dummies but it wasn't as good as the first one mentioned.
I really like the first book. I go through it all the time. It's 426 pages and it goes over pretty much everything. She also talks about her own struggle w/ Bipolar. It has good information on medications too, which I know you will appreciate.
