My crazy life

by aprilgirl on Jul 25, 2013

This book described my married life for the past 30+ years. I thought I was alone and no one would understand. This book changed that.

Patient profiles not necessarily typical

by katclimber on May 28, 2009

I write this review as a psychologist who is familiar with diagnostic criteria and presentation of BPD. There are some useful tidbits in this book on how to talk to patients with BPD if you are a family member or friend. My problem with the book is that I was going to give it to my husband to help him deal with his mother who has BPD. However, there are so many different variants of BPD, and none of the patient vignettes in the book characterized the type of BPD that his mother has, and in fact the type of symptoms many BPD women display - "splitting" of loved ones into all good or all bad, overreacting to perceived slights or rule breaking, demanding levels of attention and deference that are unrealistic, refusing to apologize. None of this was described, and so I was concerned that my husband would not believe that his mother has this condition based on the information provided in this book. So I never gave it to him. That's not terribly useful. There are other books out there that I think might be more useful and help characterize the different variants of BPD.

Excellent information !

by mabissa on Apr 3, 2008

I bought this book for a friend and she found it to be very informative and helpful. I have learned and been helped from it also as she shares sections she's read. It offers suggestions that can be used in other areas of your life, not necessarily only those who suffer from or know someone with bordeline personality disorder.
