Fine points

I imagine it might be frustrating for an author to see people discussing points already covered in the book. So, thanks to Dr. Gartner for tactfully directing readers to his book's site.

I do still wonder if the American bipolar rates are in some way related to the U.S. psychiatry apparatus (Gartner points out, for instance, that manic-depression is less prevalent in Taiwan, but it's not clear to me if psychiatric hospitalizations are classified similarly there. This is guided by my (admittedly limited) experience in school with immigrant Asian families and psychiatric illness. Maybe that's something covered inside the chapters of his book.
