First off let me say
that "Phoenix Rising" is one of the best books I have ever read.

Tony Schwarz suffered with severe bouts of depression -- each one becoming
worse that the last. He was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. Tony felt
that, by writing this book, he could help other people with the same disorder
and help their family understand how to help their loved ones.
Tony writes of 12 Golden
Keys to unlock your depression. He developed the program by combining
his spiritual principals with the 12-steps, first founded by Alcoholics
Anonymous. To do this, he combined each step with holistic healthy habits.
He also stresses the importance of finding a good doctor and the correct
I found "Phoenix
Rising" to be a very candid, open, and honest portrayal of a person's
battle with depression. I think this book is extraordinary. Thank you

help others. Your father would be very proud.
