"Firstly... You should read this book Bipolar: A Path to Acceptance. It'll make you laugh, cry and deeply move you in a way no other book has before. ...then ask them to pass on this remarkable book to their friends and family.
"On opening up to the public about his battles I find him to be extraordinarily brave. For Bernie to share his experiences is not only a healing experience for him, but it also allows other sufferers to know that there are other people, such as Bernie, out there and that you can overcome these hurdles and become successful and happy."
"Though our lives may be worlds apart, I am really inspired by Bernie's story. It is a classic story of struggle, despair and triumph. But most of all it shows the power of setting goals, persevering and keeping yourself accountable. This unique book is Bernie's story as he lived it. You will laugh, you will cry but most of all you will be inspired. Whether you have mental illness or not, Bipolar: A Path to Acceptance is a wonderful read which will, without a doubt, encourage you to seek success in your own life."
"I applaud Bernie Mitchell for his bravery in telling his story publicly."
"For many years, Bernie has wanted to write this book to get his story out. He wanted to help people understand mental illness and give sufferers and their families some hope amongst all the despair. To let you know that with the right help, support and inner strength you can do what you want to do, become who you want to be and have everything you desire."
"As your 'favourite' client for four years running now, I had no idea what you were keeping under wraps! Having suffered the debilitating effects of postnatal depression myself, I have a new-found respect for you for navigating bipolar through to radical acceptance, while keeping a healthy balance at home and building such a successful
business! And now, for sharing what you have learnt."
"I really only knew that Bernie had bipolar when I read the manuscript for this book. Having previously been in a close relationship with another sufferer I was able to understand the enormous achievements that he has made to be able to operate such a professional Real Estate Management company. I have no doubt that Bipolar: A Path to Acceptance will be incredibly valuable for others who are seeking an understanding of what is happening to them on a daily basis."
"With a member of my family suffering Bipolar Disorder when asked to read this book, I saw it as not only an honour but I was also curious to see if what we were experiencing was the 'the norm'... What I did learn is that Bernie is NOT 'the norm'... he is far from it. The tenacity, persistence, courage and determination Bernie has shown throughout the years, dealing with what his illness has thrown at him, as well as supporting his family and building a successful career along the way, is truly inspirational."
"Bipolar: A Path to Acceptance is an honest, transparent and authentic account of Bernie's journey. I never knew he had bipolar. I know Bernie as a standout, truly professional real estate agent. His entrepreneurial spirit brings fresh ideas to the industry creating a powerful presence in the real estate market. He is a joy to work with!"
