I can recommend a book by Stuart Sutherland, an Professor of Psychology, about his manic depression/bipolar affective disorder called 'Breakdown', published by either Oxford or Cambridge University Press. It is disarmingly frank, and although he doesn't emerge from it as terribly likeable, it has a blistering critique of psychoanalysis in it, and a useful, non - jargon laden review of cognitive therapy.

Don't knock the role of supportive, educational and 'coping strategy enhancement' work in the management of manic depression. THIS sort of psychotherapy - and it IS psychotherapy - is invaluable.
