Nearly 6 million Americans have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and yet little is known about how the illness manifests itself in our brains. Ride the Tiger tells the stories of accomplished individuals who have been diagnosed with bipolar, and explores treatment options.
Psychotherapist Philippa Perry explores the dramatic rise in bipolar disorder diagnoses, looking at the condition from the perspective of people living with it.
Arriving after years of sonic bombast in Hüsker Dü, the reflective, acoustic nature of Bob Mould's first solo album, Workbook, was a bold statement of renewal. Like all of Mould's work, it's an intensely introspective record, finding him purging demons left over from the dissolution of Hüsker Dü. Instead of relying on raging guitars, Mould explores a wide variety of styles, from pure pop ("See a Little Light") to reflective folk laced with cellos. It's an astonishing array of styles, and the songs are among Mould's finest.
