Mania A Short History of Bipolar Disorder Johns Hopkins Biographies of Disease Review ☆ 102 Healy clears much of the confusion surrounding bipolar disorder even as he raises crucial uestions about how why and by whom the disease is diagnosedDrawing heavily on primary sources and supplemented with interviews and insight gained over Healy’s long career this lucid and engaging overview of mania sheds new light on one of humankind’s most vexing ailment.
