Reviews

Ellen Forney is an inspiration to me as an artist and as a human being! Let her drawings springboard you into self-acceptance!--Maria Bamford
This graphic memoir is part memoir, part self-help for anyone who struggles with mood issues--or really, anyone looking to practice a little more self-care.
Forney's writing is unpretentious, occasionally goofy and manifestly replete with love for her fellow humans. Her art is full of love, too; her rich, swooping line seems to cradle the reader's eye. ... This nuts-and-bolts coping book manages to transcend its category and become something even non-depressed readers will enjoy.
Rock Steady is a balanced, uncluttered resource, infused with empathy, humor, and encouragement. This guide is mental health literacy at its best, making it a must-read for those with mood disorders and their loved ones, health professionals, and anyone looking to gain a greater understanding of an often misunderstood but common condition.
Rock Steady is truly a must-read for anyone who struggles with a mental disorder or someone who finds comfort in daily structure. Forney addresses readers with the tone of a caring friend, and her approach will likely make her fans eager for more grounding advice.
Rock Steady is a heartfelt guide to staying calm and centered in moments of emotional crisis.
Rock Steady is a unique work: a cartoon handbook on surviving the ups and downs of bipolar disorder by someone who's been there and wants to empower and assist others by sharing what she's learned. And it's pretty damn brilliant.
