  • G. Wallis - This changed my life!I have always had "great" posture, yet over the last 10 years or so I have been having pain in my lower back when I bent over. I went to doctors, chiropractors, and acupuncturists...but the relief was minimal. Little did I know that my "good posture" was not correct posture (too forward, and pelvis tucked the way I learned in ballet). After reading this book I started walking, sitting, and sleeping the way she recommends. Within less than a month the pain I had when bending over was GONE!
    Thank you Esther.
  • Someone Who Reads - My Dr. recommended itI knew I had a problem years ago and had suspected Bipolar Disorder so I decided to see a psychiatrist to find out what it was exactly. I was diagnosed with bipolar and had a general idea of what it was from internet research but I wanted to learn a little more and have something on hand to get my family to understand what it was I was dealing with (and themselves as well) so this was recommended to me by my doctor at the time.

    I know some of the reviewers took exception to the levity in the book or the fact that it doesn't go in depth into the disorder, as for the later, it's a book for beginners, hence the "for Dummies" part of the title. This is a book for someone who is just beginning to dip their toes into the understanding of BD, this isn't a textbook. Yes, you kind find this information online, but you have to research it, a lot, and in multiple places, which can make things confusing for someone just starting out. Especially if the websites aren't based on the continually updated information (and not just someones opinion). The fact that all the basic and core information is in one neat little book, and clearly outlined and organized, puts things in a much clearer way not only for the owner of the book, but for the people around the owner. It's much more easier taking out a book and pointing to a passage for the sake of showing someone else rather then opening up multiple sites and pages to find the same information. Using the internet when it's just that individual involved makes sense and can be much more convenient, but when it comes to a mental disorder, the people around the person diagnosed are as much a part of the diagnosis as they are. And if you do want to go in depth, the book is a nice place to pinpoint specifics so you know what to look for online.

    As for the levity, bipolar disorder is a serious disorder, a lot about the disorder can be very ugly and it's very difficult, both for the person and for everyone around them. I have bipolar disorder, I have to deal with it, I have to understand it, but I don't have to learn about it in a coldly sterile "this is serious business" kind of way. To be quite frank it would probably put me off on trying to understand it, especially if I'm just starting out trying to understand it. The levity takes the edge off, the humor allows you to get a little closer and put your guards down, and that can mean the difference between coming to terms and remaining in denial and ignorance.

    This is the perfect book for understanding what Bipolar Disorder is, it is basic, but the title should have been a hint. It's the perfect starting off platform and I'm incredibly glad I bought it. If you want and need only one book about BD then I'd recommend this one, even if you're looking for more this should be one of them. This book isn't an in depth understanding, it's just the beginning. And it is just a book of information, not really a book of what it's like from who lives with it.
  • Joseph S. Hill - Wow! What a deal this was!!I know this deal I got is not available anymore but I am glad I took advantage. Everyone will be forced to go to this version sooner or later. It works great on my desk top and I was able to pretty well master it in 2 weeks of playing with it. Very easy to install if you want to upgrade or do a "clean install". Very visual and excellent recognizing all my Windows 7 programs and settings.
