Brett Stevens, a professional poker player who maintains a blog on the subject, as well as a real estate agent, has completed his new book “Crossover: A Look Inside A Manic Mind”: the accounts of the author’s discovery of his mania through events, both public and private, that made it clear his decisions were not arrived at in sound mind—and that something had to change.

“This story started out as a therapeutic exercise to write a narrative of my life, integrating my childhood memories with the visceral accounts of recurrent major psychiatric illness in adulthood,” Brett Stevens said of his work. “Along the way, I discovered that I have hypermnesia: the ability to remember personal life events with detailed accuracy. As a result, this first-person account details the evolution of psychosis and its impact on my behavior.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Brett Stevens’ work captures the inability of an individual in the throes of mania to recognize that visual and auditory hallucinations, incapacitating anxiety and paranoia, and grandiose delusions of power, influence, and control were all aspects of being caught in a psychotic episode.

Through sheer determination and with the help of professionals and family, Brett Stevens is able to better handle his mental health and has used this newfound clarity to write his first book.

“My hope is that my perspective sheds light on the progression of bipolar disorder and will enhance someone’s ability to learn and empathize with those affected by the illness,” Brett Stevens continued.

To see how the author developed skills to better manage his Bipolar I Disorder, readers can purchase “Crossover: A Look Inside A Manic Mind” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
