In reading the reviews prior to purchase, I was intrigued by the “rich girl” descriptions of the author; ready to compare her childhood and life to my own, it turned out to be quite the contrast with little to bridge the gap. Unable to relate to her on that level, I was still able to absorb and appreciate the facts given concerning her bipolar illness.
Besides a look at bipolar, this book describes quite a privileged life. Besides social status, Jamison was fortunate to have had a life in a far more functional family of origin and social circle than have many. As a clinical therapist, she is surely aware of this.
As she tells it, it seems that her amazing good fortune never failed, as she continually found a reliable supply of social and professional support. Her notable career advancement for someone with the misfortune of having so serious a mental illness seems remarkable.
Not being able to study, read, work or do anything for long stretches; having considerable free time; not attending class; failing college courses; not to mention severe mood swings and refusing to take her medication … yet through it all, not only holding her own in prestigious universities but also obtaining assistantships, internships, grants, and advanced degrees, being accepted to the faculty, and eventually attaining tenure.
Surely she had rejections and setbacks, personal and professional, yet she doesn’t detail these things. Recounting the obstacles she surely had may have made her more of a multi-dimensional and interesting, relatable human being. After all, the book is selling the person, as this is an important part of her life story.
The only women mentioned in the book are the author’s mother, who sounds wonderful, and her sister, with whom the author does not get along. I wonder if the author has put any reflection at all into her relationship with members of her own gender and if so why she neglected to mention it in this book.
The personal aside — this book is a credible recounting of bipolar disorder, recommended as a resource for learning about the illness.
