An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness by Kay Redfield Jamison – review

Jan 12, Minutes Buy. Jan 12, Minutes. Here Jamison examines bipolar illness from the dual perspectives of the healer and the healed, revealing both its terrors and the cruel allure that at times prompted her to resist taking medication. An Unquiet Mind is a memoir reddield enormous candor, vividness, and wisdom—a deeply powerful book that has both transformed and saved lives.

More about Kay Redfield Jamison. What comes through is a remarkably whole person with the grit to defeat her disease. I devoured it at a single sitting and found the book almost as compelling on a second read. An Unquiet Mind may well become a classic. Jamison sets an example of courage. This is an important, wonderful book.


An Unquiet Mind must be read. Powerfully written, it is a wonderful and important account of mercurial moods and madness. I absolutely love this book. The combination of the intensity of her personal life and the intellectual rigor of her professional experience make the book unique. A vibrant and engaging account of the life, love and experience of a woman, a therapist, an academic, and a patient.

Cuts through the dead jargon and detached observations of psychiatric theory and practice to create a fiery, passionate, authentic account of the devastation and exaltation, the blindness and illumination of the unqiuet experience. A courageous and fascinating book, a moving account of the life of a remarkable woman. A compelling work of literature. Buy the Audiobook Download: Apple Audible downpour eMusic audiobooks.
