Five stars – Not just for bipolaroids but for everybody!
“I’m a friend of Roni’s and I had no clue she was bipolar until I heard about the book. I bought it because I like her writing style and because I wanted to support her, but now that I have finished it, I think it should be on the self-help shelf of every library! This book is not just for bipolaroids, but also for anybody who suffers from depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder, or has a low self-esteem… or even anybody who, like me, is usually cheerful but has faced some difficult situations in life which have brought moments of despair and self-doubt. AND it’s also for friends and family. Which means EVERYBODY can benefit from this book. Far from being theoretical, Roni talks about her own life and how she has managed to deal with all the difficult situations she has faced. She offers the reader a very practical toolkit, in which each of us should be able to find something useful for his/her on life. Above all, this is an amazing survival story.”
