The Bipolar Child by Dr. Dmitri Papolos and Janice Papolos

Optimism alone won't beat bipolar disorder. Like the ADHD guide, this seeks to be an ultimate handbook, though a more reader-friendly one, with family histories and a whiff of inspiration. It also covers such practical matters as hospitalization and insurance. Importantly, the book makes families part of treatment, explaining how bipolar disorder disrupts the home and how parents and siblings can adapt.
