520 "With suicide rates exploding and the rates of mental
health diagnoses increasing, there has never been a
greater need to grapple with the complexities of the
troubled mind. Terri Cheney knows this first hand. In her
bestselling memoir, Manic, Cheney offered a gripping, no-
holds-barred account of her bipolar disorder that nearly
killed her. Now, in Modern Madness, she brings her
narrative gifts to a book that is rich with practical
insight. Structured like an owner's manual (e.g.,
Instructions for Use, Troubleshooting, Maintenance,
Warranties), Cheney portrays the experience of mental
illness from the inside out, drawing on her own struggle
and recovery to illuminate a world that often seems
forbidding or frightening. Using narrative as a
springboard, Cheney explores broader issues common to all
diagnoses, like stigma, coping skills, relationship
dilemmas, and the vicissitudes of treatment. With a clear
focus on the need for acceptance, both personal and public,
Modern Madness is riveting, heartbreaking, and ultimately,
hopeful. Not just for readers with a diagnosis, it will be
invaluable for anyone looking to understand mental
illness"--|cProvided by publisher.
