5.0 out of 5 stars Packed with info, advice & sensitive discussion of BPD, 3 April 2009

This review is from: The Borderline Personality Disorder Survival Guide: Everything You Need to Know About Living with BPD (Paperback)
Anyone who has tried to get information on BPD will know that there is still stigma attached to the condition and the large amount of information floating around to reinforce this stigma really doesn't help matters!

I have read several books on BPD and this is by far one of the most compassionate. Many of the other books on BPD label people with BPD as manipulative and lacking in self-awareness which not only strenthens the negative associations of the condition but also just add to the frustration of sufferers. BPD is a complicated condition and the writers of this book really understand the dangers of labelling people with BPD as 'manipulative' or dismissing attempts at suicide as mere cries for help. As well as addressing various misinformation, the book provides practical and accessible background information and offers advice on coping strategies too.

The book will be useful for anyone diagnosed with BPD or anyone who thinks they have symptoms or anyone who just wants to find out more maybe because they know someone with BPD. The book is really well-organized and you don't have to read it cover to cover to get a good grasp of things. Overall, really good reading - it deals with BPD sensitvely and is never judgemental or condescending.

A highly recommended book that should have been published years ago!
