I love this book! May 22, 2011
This textbook does a superb job in explaining borderline personality disorder (BPD), and suggesting strategies for coping with the borderline in your life. The textbook is written in an easy-to-read style, the language is simple. I believe this textbook should be required reading for every psychological and psychiatric training program in the country. I cannot recommend this textbook highly enough.
