Jamison's research is as relevant in 2008 as it was when it was first published in 1996. Although she tries to let her research tell the story of creative genius and its relationship to bipolar II disorder, she cannot disguise her appreciation of discipline amidst chaos and the creation of beauty from despair. Most interesting is her final discussion, on the genetic significance of the disorder and its continued value to the development of the human species.
