5.0 su 5 stelle An Intriguing And Informative Collaborative Memoir 13 ottobre 2016
Di Ralph Zieff - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Fran Houston and Martin Baker have put together a very readable and very important book regarding their shared journey through the wildly unpredictable nether lands of a major mental illness/ Their very intimate communications during periods of illness exacerbations and high stakes challenges are both intriguing and informative regarding the resiliency of the human spirit and the deeper meaning that the term "supportive" can have. All professional and pre-professional care-givers and those who suffer with illness can learn much from this collaborative memoir, and medical schools, graduate schools, hospitals, and other institutions that educate practitioners in the fields of health care would be wise to include it on reading lists. I am already three years into my retirement from a 45 year practice as a licensed clinical psychologist, and I wish a book like "High Tide Low Tide" had been available many years ago. Ralph M. Zieff, Ph.D.

5.0 su 5 stelle Don’t Worry About Me. Care For Me 18 settembre 2016
Di Stewart - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
The story behind High Tide, Low Tide, and how it came to be written is every bit as remarkable as the book itself.

The authors, Martin Baker and Fran Houston met online in May 2011. At the time Fran was living on an island in Maine, USA, and Martin in Newcastle upon Tyne in the North of England. Fran suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and bipolar disorder, and now, in a way, Martin is a long distance carer – in that he cares about her. His caring shines through in the easy, flowing writing style, as he tells the moving and powerful story, taking us into Fran’s world of bipolar, in particular.

And that’s what makes this story so remarkable – the fact that Fran lives in the USA and Martin is in England.

It’s a story that simply had to be told; appealing, as it surely will, to every single person suffering from bipolar, to every single mental health carer, and to everyone who has absolutely no connection with, or an interest in, this completely misunderstood and feared ailment.

The reason why? Because it’s a human story told told in human terms, which skilfully sweeps aside the dark myths surrounding bipolar.
High Tide, Low Tide is well structured, well written, and, even though I’m a veteran mental health campaigner, had me thinking long and hard about how people suffering from bipolar actually live with it.

My only slight quibble, and this is a purely personal point of view, is that the introductory explanations run to too many mini sections - with titles such as Preface, Introduction, Why This Book Is Different , Key Messages, and Perspective and Language – before we get to the real meat. But that meat, when we start to devour it, is filet mignon all the way, and fully deserves the five stars I’ve given it.

I was particularly taken with an early comment from Fran: “Don’t worry about me, care for me,” which Martin says is one of the first things he remembers Fran telling him, and he feels it is as relevant today as it was then.

Structured in three principal sections: “Be Who You Are,” “Do What You Can,” and “Embrace The Journey,” each one contains a number of solid gold nuggets of wisdom, which truly mean something to people involved with bipolar – either as sufferers, or as carers. Such as “Care but Don’t Crowd. Share but Don’t Pollute,” “Being A Haven,” and “Wellness and Illness.” By its very nature bipolar, with its episode of mania and depression, has both positive and negative implications, and these are explored accurately and skilfully, and above all, show the human costs of the ailment.

Exploring what bipolar is and what causes it, we are taken on a journey almost into Fran’s mind, looking at what bipolar “labels” mean and don’t mean to her…along with the physical symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.

This may all sound dark and depressing. But it isn’t. This is a book about friendship, overcoming adversity and the incredible long distance relationship between two truly extraordinary people. It’s well documented, well researched, and contains important source material and contacts for anyone needing assistance with the subject matter which is so often misunderstood.

I was honoured to be given a free pdf copy of this remarkable book for my review. Overall, the unique relationship between Fran and Martin makes fascinating and moving reading. Five stars for every single aspect of it.

5.0 su 5 stelle and painful lessons they learned can be applied to our own ... 12 settembre 2016
Di AngryGnome - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This book is not light hearted reading. It is a serious, almost scholarly examination of the impact of Bipolarism, and how it affects relationships, work, and the individual's entire life. It is also breathtakingly honest and pulls no punches. But in spite of the serious nature of the illness, it is not depressing, as it is filled with hope, humour and more than a touch of beauty.

High Tide, Low Tide tells the story, in an almost epistolary fashion, of two people, Fran and Marty. It speaks of their friendship, their fights, their deep regard and respect for each other, and it provides a rare glimpse behind the curtain of a little understood illness.

But what surprised me most about this book was not the elegant writing, or the brutal honesty of the subject matter, but the fact that not only could I relate to it, but that I found so much in it that touched me at a personal level. Fran and Marty's story, as unique as it is, could be anyone's story. There will be moments as you read this book where you will recognise yourself. Thankfully, the strategies, and painful lessons they learned can be applied to our own lives and our own relationships.

Do I recommend it? Most certainly. It is both insightful and inspiring, and helped me look at Bipolarism with new eyes. If anyone you know is Bipolar, then this book will not only help you understand them, but give you both better coping mechanisms in dealing with it.

5.0 su 5 stelle A wonderful resource on friendship and mental illness 15 settembre 2016
Di Stacey Lehrer - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
There are many wonderful books focusing on mental illness from a first-person perspective, and from the perspective of family members, but so few that focus on friends. This book fills that void, addressing the complexities of maintaining a friendship when mental illness is involved. The authors speak openly and honestly about their friendship – the challenges, the successes, and what they’ve learned along the way. It’s clear that their friendship has been life-changing for both of them, and they share insights that can help to strengthen any friendship. I first became interested in this book in its early stages because I also had a close friend with mental illness who lived far away, and I struggled to find relevant resources or supports. My friendship was different in some ways, but in reading the book I was struck by how closely the experiences mirror each other. To me that speaks to the value of the book, that it goes beyond just the experiences of the authors, to a more universal truth. The symptoms of mental illness can make it hard to maintain friendships; the stigma and shame around mental illness make it even harder. This book shows us that it’s okay to admit it’s hard, and it’s okay to struggle, but that it’s so worth it in the end. This review was written in exchange for a free PDF copy of the book.

5.0 su 5 stelle what it’s like to be friends with someone who has a mental ... 19 settembre 2016
Di Megan A. Cyrulewski - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I met Marty via Facebook about three years ago. At the time, I ran a blog that featured indie and upcoming authors. When Marty told me the concept of this book, I immediately responded to him and said, “When this book comes out and if there’s a waiting list, put me on it.”

I was so excited when Marty send me a PDF copy. I wish I could say I devoured it in one sitting but this book hit me a lot deeper than I expected. I obviously knew the concept, what it’s like to be friends with someone who has a mental illness, but I found myself walking away from my computer several times.

The vast range of emotions you will experience while reading this book might surprise you even if you have never experienced mental illness. I felt myself “talking” to the book while I was reading. It seemed like I cried when reading about Fran crying or getting angry when reading about Marty’s anger.

I found myself shaking my head in disbelief many times wondering how an international friendship like this one works so well. How can Fran possibly rely on Marty when she’s in Maine and he’s in England? How can Marty feel like he is “there” for Fran when he’s in England and she’s in Maine? But somehow, someway, they make it work.

I think you have to understand that when reading this book, the amount of time that Marty and Fran put into building a friendship, which began on social media, is phenomenal. It shows that you don’t have to live in the same city, state or even country to form the bonds of friendship. You just need love and that, I believe, is the key to Fran and Marty’s friendship.

A bond of love built on understanding, kindness, caring, strength, and willpower. A bond of love regardless the circumstances that may test them both. A bond of love that will continue to grow even when there are setbacks. A bond of love that will never break and cannot be broken.

Fran and Marty are two extraordinary people. They are two people giving us the gift of sharing their story.

And what a gift it is.
