At once hilarous and harrowing, Electroboy paints a mesmerizing portrait of a man held hostage by his raging mania. An unforgettable memoir.

For anyone who has suffered bi-polar disorder, themselves or with a loved one. An accurate, intense and sometimes frightening dive into that world. The book is funny, sad and overall a good read. It is sexually explicit.

A fast-paced (of course, he's manic!) account of a more-manic-than-usual man enduring and ultimately understanding the throes of bipolar disorder. A court drama and New York references thrown in for good measure. A nice read.

What a ride! I went from disliking this man's cockiness to feeling very very sad and compassionate toward him as his illness progressed. It takes courage to write a memoir such as this. Funny, sad, and very uncomfortable at times, and definitely a good read about bipolar disorder.
