5.0 out of 5 stars
Thorough, accessible, excellent!, 5 Aug 2008
If you have bpd, you must buy this book. Written by someone who really has been there and seen it all, this is a wonderful, compassionate and extremely thorough account of all aspects of the disorder. As someone with severe bpd, I have laughed and cried my way through these pages ;). It takes you through diagnosis, causes, historical thinking, case studies, scientific background, treatments and offers great advice for individuals and their families. I cannot recommend this book enough, almost certainly all you will need to understand bpd and realise you can live with it successfully!
