    WILMINGTON, NC, October 22, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Five wives, two dead daughters, jail time, and a tour in a nut house, the term used in his day to describe a mental institution.What's left for life to throw at Sid to wipe the smile off his face? A new ebook apparently. Nachman has announced that 'Bipolar Me' is available for download for Amazon Prime members and Kindle Unlimited subscribers.

Sid Nachman was the first person in the US to have been successfully treated for bipolarism over 50 years ago. He announced that 'Bipolar Me' his memoir, is now available as a Kindle ebook download. 'Bipolar Me' is a wild ride of a story that has garnered high praise from readers and reviewers alike. Sid's no-holds-barred writing style and deft storytelling, combined with his own style of acerbic wit, takes readers on a trip through his life and his mind. It is filled with hilarious stories that show us that life is just plain good. BookLover USA said that the book is "A roller coaster ride through the mind of one of the funniest and endearing story-tellers of his generation."

'Bipolar Me' is a highly entertaining memoir that allows readers to take a ride with Sid into the unfettered mind of a bipolar boy who never grows up until his hair turns white. Readers will get to see his world in black and white and vivid color and will feel what he feels when he feels like he weighs three thousand pounds and a minute later can leap over tall buildings. Sid's life is a life gone wild that settles down when it's almost too late.

"Being bipolar is no laughing matter," Nachman stated, "Doctors in the 50's didn't know their front from their back about chemical imbalances in the brain and diagnosed it as a form of schizophrenia, administered electric shock to eliminate all the ichies in the cortex, and if you were a blight on the community, locked you up with the rest of the mental defectives. Later as the doctors became more enlightened they called the disease, 'Manic Depression'. In the 70's, to soothe the nerves of those afflicted as well as their families and to make it sound less threatening the doctors named the disease, "Bipolar".

Sid Nachman is also the author of 'Strictly For Seniors' - a nonfiction work of short stories about what happened to Sid "after breakfast on Delancey Street" in West Philly during the 30's and 40's when his Mom gave him a big hug and kiss and sent him on his way. Sid had great fun, survived bullying by hitting the bigger boys about the head with his violin case and developed his own singular brand of "street smarts".

Both of Nachman's books have received fantastic reviews. One stated, "Like James Joyce, Sid Nachman can take the ordinary and turn it into magic with a fluency that's imperceptible." Another said "Sid's stories touch the human soul with wit, charm and realism."
