Date of publication: July 20, 2015

John E. Wade II, retired CPA, author, investor, television producer, and philanthropist, reveals in his memoir, The Bipolar Millionaire and the Operation, his personal struggle with bipolar disorder and his experience being the focus of an all-encompassing and benevolent entity he calls the Operation. Wade takes the reader through his family experiences, political aspirations and beliefs, spiritual journey, relationship trials and errors, and battle with mental illness, as well as writes about how he feels he has been cured of the detrimental aspects of bipolar disorder. With the help of a unique and powerful network he calls the Operation, and through religious beliefs, personal perseverance, and the help of friends, family, and his mental health professionals, Wade lives an active, creative, and successful life. His memoir doesn't end with contentment at achieving a balance in his life, however. Instead, Wade expresses a determined vision for the future, aiming to assist humanity in what he describes as achieving heaven on earth through his writing, political and spiritual endeavors, as well as through being the focus of the ever-pervasive Operation.

Kari& Autumn: What inspired you to become a writer? 

John: In reality, I don’t know.  I woke up on January 2, 1998 and just started writing.  This resulted in my first book Focus Investing, which was completed and almost published by John Wiley & Sons. I often credit my mother, however, as she majored in English and was very particular about how my siblings and I spoke growing up. Her specific style of speaking can likely be found in my writing style.

Kari& Autumn: Where do you come up with the ideas for your books? 

John: The idea for writing The Bipolar Millionaire and the Operation came from an intellectual property attorney. He suggested I write down the story of my life, especially considering the unique aspect of the Operation.  I’ve been writing about Heaven on Earth since the year 2000 and two books resulted from that.  My first book, Deep Within My Heart was inspired during a period of depression mostly after my second divorce.   Ronald Reagan’s Wisdom for the Twenty-First Century was inspired by the president that I consider the greatest in my lifetime.

Kari& Autumn: What exciting projects are waiting in the wings? 

John: I am reviewing, analyzing, summarizing and adding my own ideas to Henry Kissinger’s wonderful book, World Order.  I am also considering finishing my own book, John’s Vision of Heaven on Earth.

Kari& Autumn: Who is your favorite literary character and why? 

John: Since I only read nonfiction, I’ll just tell you whom my favorite author is: Walter Issacson, the biographer. His writing is superb.  I read for growth, while I do other things for entertainment.  I like to take one of his books on vacation because they are so interesting, well written and factual.

Kari& Autumn: Just for fun, if you could be any animal, what would it be and why? 

John: I would be a porpoise because I understand they are intelligent.
