Clown and I is an explicit look at the life of Ryan Heffernan. He chronicles his journey through depression and hypomania. This book really goes into the way mania can take over and how it can impact your life. From crazy ideas, hyper-sexuality, to relationships laid to waste by episodes it talks about it all. I have to admit reading this book it felt like he had an insight in how my mania could be and it helped me to realize that while I miss it I am better medicated. Definitely worth a read.
