Agents in My Brain
How I Survived Manic Depression

Bill Hannon

In this compelling autobiography, Bill Hannon offers an engrossing first-hand account of living with the grandiose delusions which rendered him incapable of holding a job or accepting help from his friends and family. From his earliest manic episode during a high school trip to Israel to his struggles with misdiagnoses and the frightening side-effects of prescribed drugs, Hannon guides the reader into a world in which crossword puzzles are coded messages from the C.I.A. and a scrap of masking tape on a car windshield means his conversations are being monitored.

"A vivid and often poignant portrayal of what it is like to grapple with the realities of manic depressive disorder."
—Timothy Twito, M.D.

“Hannon is brave indeed to have written this memoir of his struggle with the manic depression which has afflicted him since high school.”
—Publishers Weekly

 “In this compelling autobiography, Bill Hannon—a manic depressive who has successfully managed his disease and now holds down a full-time job—offers an engrossing first-hand account of living with a serious mental illness.”
—Publishers Marketing Association
