An Unquiet Mind Book Excerpt:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • A deeply powerful memoir about bipolar illness that has both transformed and saved lives—with a new preface by the author. Dr. Jamison is one of the foremost authorities on manic-depressive (bipolar) illness; she has also experienced it firsthand. For even while she was pursuing her career in academic medicine, Jamison found herself succumbing to the same exhilarating highs and catastrophic depressions that afflicted many of her patients, as her disorder launched her into ruinous spending sprees, episodes of violence, and an attempted suicide. Here Jamison examines bipolar illness from the dual perspectives of the healer and the healed, revealing both its terrors and the cruel allure that at times prompted her to resist taking medication.

Summary of Kay Redfield Jamison s An Unquiet Mind Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I was born into a family of pilots. I grew up listening to the sounds of planes taking off and landing, which always filled me with excitement. I loved the vastness of the sky, and I was a part of those who loved the vastness of the sky. #2 I idolized my older brother, who was the eldest of the three of us children, and was always willing to help me out. I felt protected by his presence. #3 My sister and I had very happy childhoods, and we were always surrounded by love and support. She had a very active imagination and was a talented artist, while I was the quiet one who loved to listen to music. #4 My father, who was a professor of physics at UCLA, was extremely generous and charismatic. He gave me a bracelet inscribed with words from Michael Faraday, which were inscribed over the physics building at UCLA.

Creativity Madness and Civilisation Book Excerpt:

What is ‘creativity’? And what is ‘madness’? How far can we interpret an artist’s work through our knowledge of his or her mental state, and how far can we infer a mental state from a work of art? When does a work of art cease to be a personal statement by the artist and become a matter of public concern? The contributions to this book attempt to answer some of these questions. They come from a wide range of disciplines and experiences – a practising psychiatrist, a practising artist suffering from reactive depression, and critics working in literature, film, music and the visual arts. The essays include discussions of the ‘myth of creativity’, the music of Robert Schumann, the borders of sanity in the writing of Lawrence Durrell, the ‘insane truth’ of Virginia Woolf, the meeting of doctor and patient in the poetry of Anne Sexton, mood disorders in the fiction of David Foster Wallace, love and madness in the poetry of Hafiz of Shiraz, and the paintings of Adolf Wölfli. Central to this discussion of creativity, madness and civilisation is the difficulty of establishing an appropriate and effective vocabulary and mindset between critics and clinical psychiatrists, which would enable them to work together in understanding mental disturbance in creative artists.

The stream of consciousness never lies as one enters into the gaping pits of the shadow realm.

A journey into shadow realm as tormented minds and spirits consumes us.

Bipolar Depression Molecular Neurobiology Clinical Diagnosis and Pharmacotherapy Book Excerpt:

This book brings together mental health professionals and researchers to offer the most up-to-date information on the diagnosis, treatment, and research surrounding bipolar depression. Its individual chapters provide valuable diagnostic information, allowing clinicians to distinguish between the various mood disorders. Further, they: review the course, outcome, and genetics of this highly heritable condition; offer a thorough overview of the neurobiology of the disorder, including what is known from neuroimaging work; delineate the treatment of bipolar depression in special populations such as children and pregnant women; address suicide, focusing on the need for assessment during both acute and maintenance treatment with interventions appropriate to a patient’s symptoms and history; and cover acute and long-term treatment strategies for bipolar depression, including both traditional and novel therapeutics for the disorder, as well as non-pharmacological treatments. This second edition reflects significant advances, including an improved understanding of the altered neurobiology of patients suffering from bipolar depression, new information on pathophysiology and genetic findings drawn from diverse studies, and a discussion of the significant strides made towards improved treatment with already available and novel agents.
