The Manicurist - Phyllis Schieber Just finished The Manicurist what an amazing story.I really wondered why it was getting 5 stars by so many people but as I kept reading and decided that it's not a fantasy or paranormal book at all I started having second thoughts. Phyllis Schieber has done a outstanding job on what it is like to live with or know someone who is bipolar. From the rollarcoaster rides, to them not wanting to take the medication to them taking it and feeling better so they think that they don't need it anymore, to having to put them in the hospital for their own safety as well as everyone else after they you find out they stopped taking it. The manic ups and the depressing lows If you know someone who loves someone who is bipolar and want to know what that family MAY be dealing with read the book.
