5.0 su 5 stelle An Intriguing And Informative Collaborative Memoir 13 ottobre 2016
Di Ralph Zieff - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
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 and painful lessons they learned can be applied to our own ... 12 settembre 2016
Di AngryGnome - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
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 Amazon.com
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 Amazon.com
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.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Superb Resource for Friends, Siblings and Therapists 7 aprile 2017
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
As a person with bipolar disorder and as someone who writes books on the topic, I am always looking for new resources for myself and clients. High Tide, Low Tide addresses a problem that so many people with bipolar disorder aren't sure how to handle- How do we maintain friendships when we get so darn sick? How can we possibly explain how others can help when we are suicidal? What really works when we are getting manic? The book also tackles the very sensitive topic of how we can overwhelm the people in our lives with our mood swings. Martin is a friend of Fran who has bipolar disorder. This book is HONEST. It doesn't sugar coat what it's like to be in our world. I simply can't recommend this book enough. Friends who want to help need a plan. This is the plan. I also recommend this book for SIBLINGS. Brothers and sisters are not parents, but they are often friends with and they are often frustrated by a sibling with bipolar. People with bipolar disorder are so worth knowing! But we do need people who understand that we get sick. I also recommend this book for therapists. When a person with bipolar disorder asks, "How can I improve my relationships?" the book has the answer. And finally, people with bipolar disorder can learn so much from this book. Yes, it's hard to read how people really feel when they experience our mood swings, but it makes sense that we can change and grow into great friends by putting ourselves in the shoes of the people who care about us! Julie
