Rock Steady: Brilliant Advice From My Bipolar Life

by Ellen Forney

A Self-help Guide to Maintaining Stability with a Mood Disorder

In Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me: A Graphic Memoir we met cartoonist Ellen Forney as she showed us in a very personal way what it's life to navigate life with a mental illness, helping de-stigmatize mood disorders with her struggles to find and maintain stability while keeping her passion and creativity.

Now 6 years later, Ellen is back with her follow up book Rock Steady: Brilliant Advice From My Bipolar Life. After writing Marble, Ellen heard from so many people with mood disorders, and it inspired her to right this self-help survival guide. Rock Steady draws from her own experience and gives you practical advice on how to overcome hassle with meds, recognize red flags, navigate therapy, develop coping skills, and all the tips and tools of someone who has been through it all and came out the other side stronger for it.
