When Madness Strikes is a memoir and clinical study by Dr. Camenietzski, a psychologist, who chronicles his self-proclaimed "ascent into madness" and offers a valuable perspective as someone who has been both a provider and a consumer of mental health services. He juxtaposes the destructive forces of his own bipolar disorder with his professional background to create a remarkable account that will appeal to professional and lay readers alike. At times scathing, but always sincere, this book will change the way people think about mental health.
