Bipolar Giveaway

I've decided that I'm going to offer a copy of "Manic" by Terri Cheney to one lucky reader.

The book is a paperback, used.

It's a New York Times Bestseller.

From the cover:  An attractive, highly successful Beverly Hills entertainment lawyer, Terri Cheney had  been battling debilitating bipolar disorder for the better part of her life--and concealing a pharmacy's worth of prescription drugs meant to stabilize her moods and make her "normal".  In explosive bursts of prose that mirror the devastating mania and extreme despair of her illness, she describes her roller-coaster existence with shocking honesty, giving brilliant voice to the previously unarticulated madness she endured.  This book does not simply explain bipolar disorder, it takes us into its grasp and does not let go.

I read this book and found it so real that I knew I'd never read it again.  There were parts where I had to put it down because some of the things were very similar to what DH has experienced.  I thought, though, that probably one of my readers might be interested in reading the book.

If you would like to be entered into the drawing, please comment below with an email address where I can reach you.  On July 16 I will use Random.com to select a winner.  I will post the winner here, and notify you by email.
