This is a must-read for all who want to begin to understand - and even empathise with - those struggling with Bi-Polar Disorder. It chronicles - and imparts not only the horrors of, but also the utter loneliness of - a very public and severe mental meltdown, peppered occasionally with random acts of small human kindnesses. Prison brings with it - and David Williams documents in his unique style of writing - a degree of external calmness whilst still falling apart within; and the painful, painful struggle to survive, regain balance and grow. He implicitly asks that question so many of us are asking in this postmodern, mad world: what is insanity? Is it really anything other than a rational response to an irrational culture? My only sadness is that it isn't yet a paperback that I can lend to friends (in which case it would have got 5 stars!)
